Day eight of our Wakefield Trinity Community Foundation Advent Calendar looks back on our NCS spin-off, Be the Difference.
Over the Easter Holidays 2021, the Foundation set about to inspire young people aged between 11 and 15 with a social action programme held at the Be Well Support stadium.
Run by our experienced staff, the participants got the opportunity to take part in group-based activities, learning the importance of supporting a community.
Throughout the five-day programme, the young people were offered the chance to complete a social action project with one of our community partners as well as take part in some fundraising activities, resulting in a huge £465 being raised for our local community.
Throughout this time, they were exposed to all kinds of important skills, learning about communication and teamwork, which did, in turn, increase their confidence and self-esteem.
