‘The Ruff & Ruby sessions are dynamic & impactful – they change the attitudes of young people & make a significant & measurable difference’ (Julie Pascall – Deputy Head @ Ormiston Horizon Academy)
AS A CHARITY WE DELIVER MOTIVATIONAL SESSIONS TO BOTH YOUNG PEOPLE & YOUNG ADULTS IN A SCHOOLS, COLLEGES, CHURCHES,FESTIVALS /EVENTS OR YOUTH ESTABLISHMENT SETTINGS.
These are unique in both style & content & can be tailored to the individual establishments needs & requirements.They can be delivered as one-off sessions to largescale year groups in schools as part of PSHE /SEAL (or RE days if required) or on a regular basis as ‘a course’ to take young people ‘on a journey’ – or alternatively as a small group activity as a ‘targeted intervention’ for vulnerable young people deemed as ‘at risk’.
The workshops are engaging,innovative & progressive,being hard hitting, current & relevant to the issues that young people / young adults face. They feature creative communication, music, performance, multi media,visual aids & include ‘personal stories of change’ from the team.
They have included subjects such as limiting beliefs, power of words, dreams & aspirations, goals, living without fear, depression & anxiety, gossip & bullying, labels & masks, substance misuse ,’twinkle don’t twerk’ sex & relationships, sexting, sexual exploitation, emotional intelligence, body image,choices, anger, cannabis/drug awareness and funky RE.
