We aim to inspire every young person we meet - and in turn, we draw our inspiration from them and what they can achieve.
This video will give you an idea of what a team of 10 young people (mostly participants from our first course) achieved in the “Mount Everest Challenge” in June 2009.
What makes us different?
Our courses are challlenging, fun, and high energy. We ask our course participants:
“Can you give us a short sentence to describe how you feel about the course overall?”
Here are all their replies, word-for-word and unedited.
“Excellent, one of the most worthwhile things I’ve done. Really inspiring and has raised my goals and my belief in reaching them.” (Jimmy, 18)
Feedback from parents and professionals
We’ve also had great feedback from parents; a common theme is that course participants have used their learning to improve their relationships with friends and family. Here are some comments from parents:
“I can only say it is astounding the change in [my son]. He is now able to take a positive slant on all aspects of his life. What we now recognise as negativity … has gone and we hope that the skills [he] has learnt from you and your team will be long lasting. [He] is enthusiastic about all aspects of school and his GCSE courses. He is well organised and goes to school with a positive approach and is getting very good feedback already from his tutors.He has always been happy at home but home life is much more relaxed.”
“[My daughter] has been at her absolute best since the course and is still totally focussed. A great bonus is that she and [her Dad] seem not to be arguing so much.”
“Since returning from your residential trip [his] self confidence has soared. Inner Flame provides young people with the opportunity to work as part of a funcitioning team. Offering a unique opportunities to develop important communication skills, and to boost self esteem through the sense of purpose that working as part of a team creates.” (Key Worker)
