The programme sponsored by the CMI and delivered by Grassroutes for disadvantaged young people in year 8 in leadership is underway with excellent early results. This programme for the unengaged has seen the youngsters - climb, abseil,cave, problem solve and work with the Avon an Somerset search and rescue team. Our next visit is to the University of Bristol.The aim being to inspire members to think about a university future. The group are genuinely looking forward to the visit which must be regarded as a success. This is a pilot and we are all learning. We can be proud to have upped the aspiration level of these 25 youngsters . A full report will be written and it is hoped that this will attract future funding from other sponsors.
