A group from Rush Croft School in Waltham Forest recently completed their “Working With Others” Key Skill Qualification by working together to support the Operation Christmas Child Charity, encouraging their school to fill shoeboxes with gifts for younger children and then going to the warehouse to support the checking and packing process.
Young people from across Waltham Forest recently took part in a project called “Best Buddy” which is run by the London Fire Brigade with support from Worth Unlimited youth workers. Young people have the opportunity to take part in team activities, learn to scuba dive and practice Breathing Apparatus drills at the Fire Brigade training centre. Over three days the young people learn through experience that having a buddy to support you offers opportunities to push yourself to experience new challenges.
Young people in Waltham Forest recently enjoyed a residential experience in Kent with Worth Unlimited during their February Half Term break. The residential offered an opportunity to meet new friends and to think about what it takes to be not only independent but part of an interdependent community.
Parkour: Free running and movement skills learnt by young people in the Wirral area in the Summer.
Outdoor pursuits provide young people in Macclesfield a great chance to have shared experiences in a different new environment and build significant and supportive relationships with adult mentors.
Young people across Waltham Forest competed in a range of street based activities during the summer holidays in a search to find a local Supersatr champion.
Young people working at The Bridge Community Venue in Redbridge had a go at various drills at a local fire station.
It has taken more than 6 months for a single decker bus to be transformed into an exciting mobile youth venue now used throughout Waltham Forest by Worth Unlimited teams.
Young people taking part in the Work Related Learning Project at our Branch in Redbridge took part in a simulated Road Traffic Accident rescue with the London Fire Brigade. The crashed car was stablised, the roof, doors and windows cut away and the casualty carefully removed to the waiting ambulance. Teamwork and communication in a noisy and stressful environment were essential.
A group of Christian and Muslim young men endeavoured to bridge the gap between the two faiths by simply spending time together, travelling, eating, chatting and playing together in the Lake District. In this way prejudices and barriers were removed and trust and respect increased.
Three young men recently enjoyed a trip to Wales as part of the involvement in the World Worth Living In project. Over the 4 days we did a mix of activities – from workshops and discussion groups to trips to a secluded beach where they were able to climb the coastal cliff path and fly kites and a water based activity day.
One morning we were taken to Ceibwr where we spent 2 hours coasteering – following the rocks around the coast, swimming through coves, jumping off cliffs into the Atlantic ocean and being battered by huge waves!! Then it was off to Llandysul for an afternoon of white water kayaking – another new experience for all the group. Although wet and tired at the end of the day, each of the young people knew they had pushed themselves to new limits and were amazed by what they had just done.
