Don’t worry about the ‘Professionals’ in the title as the training is open to members of the public too who might be thinking about getting involved.

Please find below details of the next ‘Motivate the Estate’ Coach Training:

26th, 27th & 28th October 2009

Dates: Monday 26th, Tuesday 27th & Wednesday 28th October (half day)

Venue: The Plaza Centre, Southchurch Road, Southend on Sea, Essex, SS1 2EP

Monday & Tuesday will run from 9am to 5pm, Wednesday 9am – 12pm with refreshments and lunch provided.

A vital part of Motivate the Estate (Community Transformation Programme) is training volunteers to become performance coaches for young people. This involves being a role model, encouraging and supporting but ultimately giving young people the opportunity to discover for themselves what is possible for them. You need no specific qualifications for the role just enthusiasm a positive attitude and the ability to relate to young people. Performance coaching supports participants to develop creative relationships with young people that lead to change, supporting them to access local services, engage with positive activities, set and achieve goals and handle challenges.

If you feel that you could contribute to the project, then you could make a real difference to a young person’s life and local communities.
