Academy Achievers is a place where children come and feel safe, they have supported academically, socially and where ever needed, they are encouraged and pushed to be the best that they can be. I currently Volunteer as a voluntary youth mentor, my role is to encourage change in challenging behavior, break negative stereotypes by creating boundaries, giving young people a new way of thinking, encouraging them to view the world from a different perspective, empower them to use positive language when describing themselves and others. As well as sharing my experiences with these children and young people, I too earn from their experiences too. Working at Academy Achievers I had the opportunity to learn how to build a Robot – this for me was something very new. I loved it! I have used my coding and Robotic skills to assist the young people in the different ranged of structured activities Cooking, Journalism and Arts & Craft. Academy Achievers is a place where our children and young people feel safe and are able to express themselves and feel supported. Thank you for the opportunity.
