Positive impact from JAF in February
Updated: Mar 20
The Jimmy Asher Foundation continues to make a positive impact in the lives of young people in the community, as evidenced by the various programs and activities held in the month of February. One of the highlights of the month was the daily sports sessions conducted by Rachel at South Thames College. Rachel's dedication and passion for sports were evident in her interactions with the students, as she encouraged them to push their boundaries and strive for excellence. The sessions provided the students with an opportunity to engage in physical activity and improve their health and fitness levels. Another noteworthy initiative was the youth working sessions held at Pollards Hill Youth Centre and Acacia Adventure Playground. Snit, Serena, and Tyreka led the sessions, which focused on teaching young people important life skills such as communication, teamwork, and problem-solving. These sessions were instrumental in helping the participants build their confidence and develop a positive outlook towards life. In addition to these programs, Coach First and Marco delivered self-defense classes during the February half-term break. The classes were designed to teach young people how to protect themselves in dangerous situations and instill in them a sense of self-confidence and empowerment. The participants were able to learn valuable techniques and strategies for self-defense while also having fun and staying active during their break from school. Overall, the Jimmy Asher Foundation continues to demonstrate its commitment to providing young people with the resources and support they need to succeed in life. Through initiatives such as these, the foundation is helping to build a brighter future for the community, one young person at a time.
