Dare to Dream is an inspirational programme challenging young people to change the way they think. Working in partnership with leading organisations from the private, public and voluntary sectors, the Love Local Jobs Foundation will be supporting local schools and giving young people the confidence they need to fulfil their potential.
Delivered around core themes of self-awareness, mindset, gratitude, resilience, teamwork and employability the inspirational speaker and business mentors use their own experiences and extensive knowledge to drive and motivate young people.
Programme Lead, Jack the Lad, the well-known former host of the Breakfast Show on Heart FM, who is now on air with More Radio, will be presenting his own personal journey, as well as listening to and understanding the incredible stories from the local next generation and future workforce.
Brighton and Hove City Council will be supporting Cardinal Newman School in Hove, helping 360 year 10 students to Dare to Dream. Alongside Jack’s personal narrative and inspirational deliveries, volunteers from Brighton and Hove City Council will mentor 15 students who are currently disengaged but believed to have great potential. Participating as mentors on the programme, the volunteers will help to promote and reinforce core themes that are central to wellbeing, employability and a positive future.
Councillor Hannah Clare, chair of the Children, Young People and Skills Committee said:
“We were delighted to support this inspirational programme in our schools, especially after the challenges of the last year.
“Dare to Dream has provided a much-needed boost of positivity, inspiration and belief for these 13 and 14-year-olds. It’s not only supported their personal wellbeing, but also helped them build goals, teamwork and resilience to help them fulfil their future potential".
