Mentor programme a massive hit with Durrington High School

Dare to Dream programme challenges young people from Worthing-based Durrington High School


Southern Water have teamed up with the Love Local Jobs Foundation to help students from Durrington High School 'Dare to Dream'.

 

Students have had their confidence boosted by inspirational speaker, local radio DJ and the Love Local Jobs Foundation's Head of Programme Delivery Jack Hayes. Support has also been given by Southern Water mentors who have used their own experiences and knowledge, to help drive and motivate our next generation of talent.

 

Kim Twine, one of the Southern Water mentors during the programme, said, “We’ve had some amazing feedback from the students. We’ve been thanked by pupils for listening and offering our support. They have also told us that they have enjoyed trying new things and appreciated us believing in them.”

 

In its fourth year, the inspirational ‘Dare to Dream’ programme challenges young people from Durrington High School, to change the way they think about themselves, their future and their place in the world.



Alex Willumsen, Community Partnerships and Programme Manager for Southern Water said, “We hope that using themes such as identity, character, self-belief, resilience and happiness, will help students feel motivated and supported in their future goals.”

 

Christina Fishlock, Head of Community Programmes for the Love Local Jobs Foundation said, “'Dare to Dream is an inspirational programme that challenges young people to change the way they think about themselves, their future and their place in the world.”
