The Nelsonspirit Future Leaders Crew that we announced we’re sponsoring at the end of last year and is now well underway with the selected young people tasked with their first projects.

The selected candidates from five local schools – Norwich School, Norwich High School for Girls, Open Academy, Taverham High School & Wymondham College – have been split into four groups, each representing and completing a project for charity.Future Leaders Crew

The projects which are designed to showcase leadership will tackle several key issues which have been chosen by the Chief Executive of each charity and are as follows:

YMCABody image issues amongst teenagers in Norwich schools

Nelson’s JourneyEngaging with harder to reach referral communities

BreakMarketing, management and engagement of young people with the Hares (GoGoHares project)

BuildProduction and launch of a video highlighting employment for people with disabilities

These great projects will not only allow the candidates to learn and develop skills they’ll need later in their working lives but they will also make a massive different to people’s lives.

We’re so proud to be sponsoring and supporting these talented individuals and the life changing organisation, Nelsonspirit.
