Positive Impact for Young People CiC will use the Positive Youth Development concept to underpin our work.
We currently offer the following provisions:
The Grow project focuses on young people’s ability to engage in an external environment to gain important life skills which promote sustainability, increase confidence, build teamwork through peer to peer engagement and improve physical and mental well-being, supporting them to reach their full potential.
Grow is an allotment based project where young people take part and lead in activities, from designing the allotment to building an up-cycled shed, learning how to grow fruit and vegetables. Young people will develop new skills in landscaping, horticulture, woodwork and up-cycling. Furthermore, this allows young people to develop their confidence, knowledge, self-esteem, communication skills and teamwork. There is no other provision of this type within the local area.
