Didcot Train

Youth Champions Participation Programme - UK

Inspiring Young People

Years: 2019

With strong support and respect from local council, the Police Commissioner and the community, Didcot Train's Youth Champions Participation Programme, will build the confidence and skills of 28 young people each year, empowering them to interact positively with their community and one another.


Building on the success of the pilot in 2018, this project will combine participation activities with one to one mentoring and will make the following differences:

Positive Empowerment: children and young people will develop their self-acceptance and confidence. They will be inspired to identify and pursue their aspirations, recognising their own talents and skills and learning to apply these in everyday situations. 
Positive Relationships: children and young people will understand that positive relationships are based upon an appreciation of equality and mutual respect. They will learn the importance of listening to one another in a non-judgemental manner and of listening and valuing alternative views and opinions.  
Positive Community Networks: children and young people will develop their interest and appreciation of the wider community. They will access other opportunities and contribute positively to the local social and physical environment.  
Increased Employment and Educational Participation: children and young people will access and/or sustain employment and educational opportunities, enhancing their immediate and future prospects of success.
