Swale Community Leisure and the Maidstone Leisure Trust are partnering with Dame Kelly Holmes Trust to deliver a new programme called, Get on Track, for young people between the ages of 16-25; who are NEET (not in employment, education or training) or at risk of becoming NEET.
The programme uses an ex-athlete, in our case GB Gold Medallist Claire Bennett, to help mentor and motivate young people, build their skills and help to stay in education, find jobs, employment or training opportunities. The programme also targets those who live in a low socio-economic output area.
At the moment these sessions will just be virtual however, subject to government guidelines and social distancing rules, we hope to get delivering in person once it is safe to do so. The programme is free for young people who meet the criteria.
We would encourage anyone interested in the programme for themselves, or alternatively an organisation wishing to refer young people in to the programme, to get in touch.
