For the last four weeks we’ve been challenging participants on a Friday to think about what makes them great. Our participants are affiliated with Priority Childcare, an organisation based here in Wales and working with young people. Their aim is to nurture and encourage young people to reach their potential. It can be challenging work when everyone is from a challenging background but that doesn’t mean to say that the challenge can’t be a positive one.
Having the confidence to try something new is probably the biggest challenge of all, especially if you’re unsure about what the outcome will be. I am Great asked everyone to think about how they can develop themselves further in whatever wonderful way they see fit. Our Friday group really excelled at learning new technical skills as well as developing their social skills. Nobody had any previous camera skills so to create this standard of photography after only a few weeks is really… well… Great!
We’re hoping to work again soon with Priority Childcare in the new year.
