Two of our coaches (Dan and Grant) have started to hold fortnightly walking football sessions. These sessions are held at Goals and have proved popular with our On Track participants. This activity has given our participants the opportunity to engage with exercise and socialise with other people from the project. The sessions also provide a non-judgemental environment where the emphasis is about joining in and not about winning or being the best.
One of our participants feels that the sessions have
“helped me a lot with building my confidence with talking to other people”.
Speaking confidently is a key skill when approaching employers as well as in interview situations. Alot of young people use technology to communicate but it is vital to remember the importance of communicating verbally and with confidence.
