Changing Lives

PB Team Residential

Heather, Davy and the Youth Participatory Budgeting Team went on a Team Building Residential to Outward Bound Trust’s Loch Eil Centre.

Aaron gave us a few sentences about their three days away; “The time away with the PB group to a few days of team building at Loch Eil with Outward Bound was fantastic, the things you learned about yourself was interesting and it was great to be able to show your true colours! I would highly recommend Outward Bound courses because the things you learn see and do is one life time opportunity and you won’t get a better chance.”

Project SEARCH Update

Interns are now coming to the end of their second rotations and are continuing to learn and develop new skills in their respective departments.

Intern Euan Bryce, has spent his second rotation with the ranger team and says “Project Search has helped my confidence grow in work related situations”. As well as continuing to work hard in their placements students are now focussing on job searching and looking for employment.

Intern Gabby secured her first ever job interview this week and stated “I would have got through my interview without the Project Search staffs help”. Fingers crossed we hear good news next week!

We have one week left before our summer holidays and have workshops on Online Safety and Stress Management as well starting on our new promotional video which will be used for our graduation, held on Friday 28th September.
