Get On Track programmes
BRAND NEW PROGRAMME
Scarborough Get on track
When: Starts 10th / 11th / 12th September 2019
Where: The Street
The Get on Track programme is designed to help young people improve their well being, confidence and self-esteem, as well as bringing them closer to their community. Our athlete mentors will introduce new types of activity to the young people, break down perceived barriers to activity and help them embed physical activity as part of their everyday life.
Out next programme is due to start in September in Scarborough. The programme will help participants;
- improve their positive social networks leading to increased integration into the community
- improve their relevant skills, experience and focus, leading to increased long-term employment prospects
- develop a more positive attitude, more confidence, and a greater sense of responsibility as a member of their community, leading to more informed lifestyle choices
The first 3 days (10th, 11th and 12th September) 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.
After 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"
