Four talented young adults formed a team this academic year. They toured the country for eight weeks during November, February and March, visiting 30 schools and one youth group. In the autumn the Team toured the west country, and in the spring term they visited the Midlands, the south-coast, London and the north-west. They spoke to 5324 pupils.
The presentation was incredibly well-received. Praise for its contents and delivery exceeded even those in previous years.
Pupil feedback included:
- It was helpful and educational
- It makes you think about the consequences
- The presentation taught me that sex has a value
- All schools should see a presentation because I know many teens want to have it to get it over with
- It is important to remember you are valuable and should save yourself for someone who really loves you
An organiser at one school summed up lots of feedback we received by saying: ‘The three young people who delivered the sessions to our students were well prepared, well informed and really professional. Their style of delivery was perfectly pitched at the correct level and the students really responded to them. The interactive style they used to deliver the information created a relaxed and positive atmosphere which enabled the students to respond appropriately and to learn about the topic. All of the staff members, including the senior team, commented on what a brilliant session they delivered. Thank you so much from all the students and staff.’
Huge thanks are due to the sixteen kind hosts and twelve drivers who helped look after the Team during the tour. One of our young presenters wrote: ‘I feel it has really boosted my confidence and it’s been good to travel, meet new people and inspire young people.’
