Inner Flame delivers training to help young people to discover their potential, to become the person they aspire to be, and to achieve what they want in life.
If you’re visiting this site, the odds are that you don’t believe the negative stereotypes of young people that are often presented by the media. The fact is that young people represent the future. We haven’t yet met anyone who doesn’t, deep down, want to make a positive contribution to the world.
Our workshops for schools and colleges can be found in the Education section of this site, and our programmes for jobseekers in Swindon can be found under the “Unemployed” tab.
We also run one-day seminars on a range of subjects, and residential courses several times a year. Fire Me Up! is a residential course for people aged 14-19. Participants experience a unique opportunity for personal growth and development through:
Challenging activities, working with skilled instructors at established centres,
Practising new skills
Meeting inspirational speakers who have overcome difficulties and achieved success.
Who is Inner Flame for?
Inner Flame is for people aged 14-25 with potential – and we believe everyone has potential . We work with young people who:
are willing to challenge themselves,
are willing to support others in a group, and
want to improve at least one thing about themself or their life.
We work with young people from wide range of backgrounds and abilities.
Results and outcomes
Fire me Up! is about helping young people to identify and achieve their own aims. We don’t impose our goals; they define what success means for them. Their likely outcomes include:
being clearer about their direction in life
increasing focus on learning or career choices.
When we ask about participants’ confidence, self esteem and goals before and after our resiential courses, we typically see a 25-40% improvement immediately. When they tell us later about how they tackle the opportunities and difficulties that they face in their lives, we regularly hear how what they learned helped them to handle things more effectively.
As you would expect, we take Child Protection and Safeguarging very seriously. All of our trustees and staff, and all volunteers who have access to confidential data or unsupervised contact with young people have an enhanced CRB check. A copy of our Safeguarding Policy can be found here, and we are happy to answer any questions you may have.
