People From Round Here

Book now

Have your voice heard and make a difference- What’s it like to live where you live? What’s special about it? What are your opportunities like? Where do you see your future going, and what could stand in your way? How could we help you and young people where you live to achieve their goals? Nobody knows what it’s like to be a teenager where you live better than you do. That’s why we’re looking for a group of people to be researchers for our “People from round here” project. We’ll talk about places, pride, community and frustrations, and how those things shape your hopes and dreams for the future. Then we’ll see how your ideas compare to young people from other parts of the country, and think about whether they feel the same, what you have in common and what might be different.

We are looking for people to commit to three workshops dates in either Nuneaton or Rugby;
Chess Centre in Nuneaton- Tuesday 16th April 10am-2pm, Thursday 16th May 4.00-6.30pm, Thursday 13th June 4.00-6.30pm
Hill Street Centre in Rugby- Wednesday 17th April 10am-2pm, Wednesday 15th May 4.00-6.30pm, Wednesday 12th June 4.00-6.30pm

We will also have a day trip on 30th July.
There may also be opportunity to visit the seaside to visit other students taking part in the People from round here project.

The Deadline to apply is 7th April and you will be informed of the decision on 8th April
