'I don’t want to stay stuck. I want to move on.’

< Back to listing

A 12-week course for young men, including young fathers, saw 7 out of 8 participants move from being not in education, training or work to employment, college or apprenticeships with intensive support from Jackson Nazombe, Social Inclusion Coordinator.

This remarkable success came out of a course designed to support the physical, emotional and spiritual development of young men. Sessions addressed the personal and professional qualities needed for the young men to take responsibility for their relationships, education and work.

One young man said, ‘It’s helped me to step back and think instead of just reacting to what happens.’
