Story

A Mind Apart uses performing arts to work with children and young people with the focus encouraging creativity, self-esteem, confidence and life skills. The organisation works with some of the most vulnerable young people in Sheffield. Not all young people succeed in our education system, and as young people's lives become even more chaotic, this number is increasing. Many young people need alternative opportunities and ways of learning beyond the 'traditional' educational subjects. A Mind Apart offers alternative education for these young people,as well as out of school activities that are made available to all children and young people.

This crowdfund is to support A Mind Apart's post 16 program, Moving Forward. The course is aimed at young people not in education, employment or training, and currently receives no other funding. This provision focuses on developing employability skills, self-esteem and social skills, with the aim of progressing students into education, training or employment.

Although the key aim of this course is to support young people to succeed in education and employment, A Mind Apart knows that their success is often down to how they see their life. Working closely with each young person staff members offer one-to-one mentoring and coaching, supporting the young people through difficult periods in their lives, whilst helping them to start making the right choices for themselves, and most importantly giving them self-belief. All of this happens alongside their course where they achieve a qualification, develop social awareness, volunteer for other organisations and other A Mind Apart services, and receive performing arts training.

The £10,000 will enable the Moving Forward course to be delivered for around six months. Please donate to this cause and change a young person's life by supporting A Mind Apart to give them a second chance at success.
