Description

Could you help teenagers who are recent arrivals to the UK,adjusting to new homes, new schools, new friends and a new language? Our aim is to improve their confidence, self-esteem and enjoyment of life.

We take the children out on trips - we go climbing, trampolining and swimming, visit museums, join performing arts projects, have picnics and play games. These are great opportunities for the children to experience new and exciting activities that they wouldn't do otherwise. We hope that some of them will continue with the activities, independently, after the holidays finish.

We aim to develop confidence and self-esteem, improve fluency in English, reduce social isolation and help teenagers to travel confidently around London. We also hope to have lots of fun!
