We’re over two and a half months into the delivery of our 22/23 Dare to Dream programme, and what an amazing start to the academic year it’s been.
Over the summer months, we put a huge amount of effort into using what we’ve learned as an organisation to tweak our programme content to ensure we’re maximising the delivery of each session.
One of the biggest, and most exciting, changes we made was securing our inspirational Head of Programme Delivery, Jack Hayes on a full-time basis. Anyone who’s ever witnessed Jack in action will fully understand why having him more involved in the day-to-day aspects of the LoveLocalJobs Foundation C.I.C is so important.
We’re all facing a multitude of challenges at the moment and the impact of these challenges is being felt by the young people within the local community. Because of this, and the future concerns they raise, experiences like Dare to Dream couldn’t be more pertinent.
Already this term, we’ve delivered programmes to over 2,500 students in schools across Sussex: a truly remarkable figure and one we’re incredibly proud of.
The success of these programmes would not be possible without the help and support of our fantastic growing network of schools, local businesses and their mentors.
We’ve plenty to look forward to over the coming months, with more school sessions, workplace visits and new collaborations with fantastic organisations making a real impact in the community.
As we said, it’s been an amazing start to the year, but the good news is we’ve only just begun.
Exciting times ahead!
