We run a variety of different projects with young people in Didcot. These projects and activities are successful because the young people we work with want them.
TRAIN delivers mentoring schemes that are tailored to support young people within the Didcot area aged 11 – 18 who are in need of weekly support, for a set period of time. To achieve for the young person better self-esteem, to empower the young person to make better life choices and for them to reach their full potential. The young people are referred to the programmes by many different agencies, including the schools, The Hub and other local partners.
TRAIN has for a number of years delivered a weekly football project that seeks to give young people the opportunity to do something constructive in their spare time whilst also promoting a healthy lifestyle. The young people learn teamwork skills and how to manage potential conflict, in a safe, fun and positive environment.
We run positive activities in Didcot and trips further afield for young people, which are targeted at those who we have been working with on the streets and in the schools. These young people will be vulnerable in their leisure time and these activities are aimed at reducing the risk for them.
