Positive Youth Training Scheme
Our Local Heroes Foundation are about to be working with high schools exclusively in the North West.
This scheme is for students aged 11-16, who are disruptive, under achieving and difficult to manage individuals.
We are hoping this can boost schools reputation in league tables and improved exam results. The charity will help under-achieving pupils to gain confidence and self worth, which will have a positive impact on them, the school, and their community.
The Positive Youth Training Scheme (PYTS), will consist of a 5 day training program which will run one day per week, over five consecutive weeks. It will include many different tasks such as presentations, group discussions, team building exercises, team orienteering, radio show productions, community projects and more!
Once the scheme is successfully completed, they will receive a certificate of achievement, a progress folder/record of achievement, and a presentation medal as a reward.
If you’re the head of a high school, teacher or parent, and you feel this scheme would be ideal, please contact us on 0845 680 2715 or email at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will send you a brochure of all the contents of the fantastic new and exclusive Positive Youth Training Scheme.
Real life Soldiers with Real life stories
Our Local Heroes Foundation have created a School Liaison Scheme to give the opportunity for our injured Soldiers to talk to pupils about real army life, dealing with their injuries, life after the army and what the future holds.
The scheme began when Brian Souter, Deputy Head of Southlands High School invited Steve Pearson and one of our severely injured Soldiers, along to present on life in the army. They promised to answer all questions from the pupils and teachers truthfully, no matter how intrusive. Their goal was to give the pupils an honest insight into the army.
Since this presentation at Southlands High School, we have worked closely with Brian Souter on various fundraising events that the pupils have kindly organised for us.
“The children had a fantastic time with the soldiers and the teachers were impressed with the professional yet honest approach of the presentation.”
- Brian Souter – Deputy Head Southlands High School.
Why we do it
The scheme helps all involved:
- The children gain a new appreciation regarding a person with disabilities being a normal human being, with a story behind them and a sense of humour.
- The injured service persons gain self respect and a sense of pride in themselves, as they sometimes have a feeling of inadequacy and low self respect due to the injuries sustained.
Since meeting Southlands High School, we have launched the School Liaison Scheme which to give other children across Lancashire the opportunity to experience first hand, life in the army. We hope to work with many other schools, helping educate others on people with disabilities along side life during and after the Army.
