The plan is to gather up to twenty young people who are leaving year 10 or 11 for a five day project for young leaders, a fun filled week including workshops in communication skills, teamwork skills and youth work skills.
The programme will run from 4pm on the 22nd July until 11am on the 27th July, at Savio House in Bollington (near Macclesfield). It is being organised by the Salesian Youth Ministry Team.
Good news – we don’t need your school or parish to supply any staff – young people can make their own way to Macclesfield station where we will collect them (or alternatively they can arrange someone to drop them off at Savio House). To cover the costs of food, accommodation and outings we are asking only £99 per head (the project is being subsidised by the Salesians). Perhaps the school or parish might be able to subsidise this further?
We hope through this week to develop Salesian young leaders by giving young people a chance to build skills which they can use in the future. We are therefore asking if you could identify any young people who have displayed leadership qualities (at school and/or local community).
Spaces are extremely limited, so please move quickly – contact Sue at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 01625 560 724 for forms or more information.
