Working with a small group of 16-19 year olds not in education or employment. The group responded really positively and we were impressed with their focus.

One participant picked up juggling very easily while another was able to spin, throw and catch poi.

Everyone seemed to enjoy having a go on the unicycle.

Not having qualifications or a job can have a negative effect on these young people’s confidence and self esteem. Some would see them as drop outs or losers which is why I felt really privileged  today to see them achieve small things, feel proud of themselves and celebrate these successes.
