Dame Kelly Holmes Trust and Young Bristol bring the ‘On Track to Achieve’ programme to young people ages 11 – 19 living in South Bristol.
‘On Track to Achieve’ is an innovative mentoring programme in which Athlete Mentors work with groups of young people aged 11-19. The programme helps develop the confidence, emotional resilience and teamwork of the young people, and enables them to reflect on their own aspirations for the future.
The programme launching Thursday 18th November, will see young people take part in practical and thought provoking activities where young people will explore their comfort zone, gain new skills and organise a project to benefit their community. The young people will be supported and encouraged by Athlete Mentor, Gold Medal Paralympic British Swimmer, Liz Johnson.
Dame Kelly Holmes Trust believes that world class athletes are inspirational mentors and role models. Coming from a background where a coaching and mentoring culture is embedded into everyday life, it’s widely recognised that sport requires a high degree of discipline, responsibility and perseverance. Athletes have proven leadership qualities, positive mind-set, communications skills, achievement of goals and resilience when dealing with the highs and lows of competitive sport and life. We harness these unique experiences, and provide training which enables our athletes to pass them on to the young people we work with.
Young Bristol looks forward to working with The Dame Kelly Holmes Trust, giving all young people the equal opportunity to be the best versions of themselves.
The weekly programme will take place:
- Every Monday, 6:45pm at BS14 Youth Club, BS14 8SJ
- Every Thursday, 6:45pm at The Grove @ Bedminster Down, BS13 7EN
