Since 2001 we have worked in high schools and the local pupil referral unit to provide 1:1 mentoring and supportive small groups which deal with issues such as drugs and alcohol, youth violence, exploitation, sex and relationships and emotional resilience.
“Today I could say that I am a changed student … not perfect … but as I continue my mentoring with Ignite I look forward to the future and I know what I want to get out of school. I am more positive and I have been shown by Ignite another way to see things. I know that great things will happen if I stay positive and learn day by day”.
“Ignite is just perfect for me and other young people that want to be more positive and need support to reach their full potential”.
Since 2001 we have been delivering bespoke programmes for schools to ensure that all young people make the most of the opportunities school provides.
"Great interaction between youth workers and students; it was informative and fun."
