As the new school term kicked off The Youth Agency had a wonderful day launching Mentors in Violence Prevention with the entire S6 cohort at Forrester High School.
Mentors in Violence Prevention (MVP for short) is a project designed to challenge violence, intimidation and bullying behaviour in our schools and communities and make them safer and better places for everyone.
As ever, it was a challenging, thought-provoking and, ultimately, inspiring day. Many thanks to everyone for their interest, involvement and enthusiasm and thank you to all of those S6 pupils who signed up to work as mentors. Our work with these pupils continues in the coming weeks as they prepare, learn and practice sessions to deliver to their younger peers in school.
It has been a real pleasure to explore these vital issues with such a thoughtful group of young people. We’re looking forward to more of the same!
