About the Project

The 'Young Start Progressions' programme at 'The Pavilion' will be a dynamic 2-year programme, led by young people, supported by staff and volunteers and by existing and new partnership opportunities. Our three-pronged approach aims to empower young individuals across various stages of their development:

Primary/Secondary Transitions Programme: We will provide support for P7, S1, and S2 young people as they transition from primary to secondary school, fostering empowerment, confidence, and improved self-esteem in a non-school environment.

Volunteer Mentoring Programme: Expanding on our successful volunteering mentoring initiative, we offer diverse opportunities for young volunteers, connecting them with roles both within Pavilion and through our network of school partnerships and community collaborations.

Attainment Programme: Focused on enhancing pathways for Junior and Senior Club participants, we integrate life skills development seamlessly into existing activities. From goal-setting exercises, certificated activity programmes to accredited learning and further training opportunities.
