Get On Track
Scarborough Get on track
When: Starts 25th / 26th / 27th February 2020
Where: The Street, Scarborough
Get on Track uses the power of sport, physical activity and athlete mentors, combined with local knowledge and opportunities, to support and inspire a young person to improve themselves; to build their self-esteem and confidence, to be more focused and determined, to be motivated, to improve their resilience and improve physical and mental well being.
We believe that sport and physical activity can create better futures. This programme really targets young people who have potential, but for circumstances they have found themselves in or aren't their doing, they are struggling to move forwards in their life
The first 3 days will provide engagement activities full of high-energy sessions designed to build a group of young people into a team to go through the programme together.
Following this, we will meet once a week to continue to develop soft skills, try new activities and engage in workshops. Young people will also deliver a social action project aiming to tackle any issue that they decide on as a group.

"Thank you for all you have done for me. You kept me strong through dark times and I can say for sure, that if it wasn't for you guys, I don't think I would be where I am today. I have a full time job as a trainee chef and I'm back in touch with my family. I want to say a huge massive 'thank you' for helping me better my life"
"The best things about get on track were meeting new people, all the activities, talking about my problems and learning how to cope with my thoughts and thinking positively about myself"
