We have been busy working out our stats from last year. 80 young people and staff took part in programmes last year and the outcomes reported are an increase in motivation, confidence, resilience, positive emotion and calmness. 96% of young people feel more positive and calm about going into the world of work and have got jobs/apprenticeships as a result. 88% feel more motivated and confident after participating in our resilience programme. Great results and we are optimistic that 2016’s statistics will be just as good if not better!

Fight for Peace commissioned Find Your Spark to run a Resilience Programme at the Academy this year. Both the young people/staff found the Resilience programme very informative and engaging. So much so, that staff have come back and requested additional training by Find your Spark as a result.
