A busy start to the year
It has been a busy start to the year for the Sidewalk Project, As well as the evening sessions on Fridays/Saturdays, whic have become more busy recently, we have continued the work in the schools and the college. Recently James went to a conference for the SNAPY network and gleaned much information about the work of resilience in young people and also the way in which youthwork can play a pivotal role in helping young adults at times of difficulty especilly those relating to alcohol misuse. The staff and management of the project have worked on the formation of a strategy which will set out the plans of the project over the next few years. Recently as well the project has met with a couple of young people individually on a regular basis to enable them to overcome challenges that are affecting them.
This week saw the beginning of the fifth batch of training for a new group of volunteers, the training will take place at Riverside church on Mondays 7.30pm.
