In this day and age there are so many moulds that young people try to fit themselves into, and so many pressures on them to meet expectations it really ought not to come as no surprise that we’re seeing such distressing rises in anxiety and mental health. Compounding the problem are cuts to funding across all essential youth services, including those directly effecting schools themselves.
We can’t just take this on the chin, and this is why we’re starting Confidence Club at Living Under One Sun’s Community Centre in Down Lane Park, Tottenham Hale.
Confidence Club represents a holistic approach to supporting young people develop the well-being skills and self confidence they need to surmount the challenges they face so that they can create their path through life the way they want it to be. It’s a big vision, and we’re reaching out to individuals and organisations who are working towards making that vision a reality.
Community, Connection, Creativity.
I’m Mike Warwick. I’m a teacher, Life Coach, Author and Therapist and the founder of Exam Magic. Confidence Club is our community outreach programme. We have an ambitious programme of events and activities planned, beginning this June.
We’re starting off, taking our first cohort of young people through a six week programme where they’ll be learning how to set goals, become more emotionally literate and widen their view of who they are becoming and who they want to be. The young people will be coached and mentored by our team and will be teaching older members of the local community how to use technology to connect, communicate and get creative.
Providing Well-Being Coaching for Young People
Confidence Club provides group and individual coaching through project based learning experiences where young people can build up a portfolio of achievements to tell their own story and create their own life path.
There will be a programme of talks from inspiring individuals representing the diversity, energy and creative power of our communities.
Far too many talented young people are held back from living the life they really want by feelings of low self worth and a lack of belief in their ability to shine. That’s not good enough! We can all make a difference and we’ve all got something to contribute to our communities.
Outward Bounds, Culture & Sport
We have a quarter acre of fenced green space at the Living Under One Sun Community Centre, where we’ll be hosting urban camping and storytelling. We’ll also be organising outward bound trips, adventures and sporting and cultural trips, both in borough and further afield.
Our vision is to see Confidence Clubs opening their doors in schools and community centres all across the UK. If you would like to start your own then please let us know and we’ll help you get the ball rolling in your community.
