New Horizons is an outstanding program where we, a group of 15 vulnerable young people from Medway will complete a series of developmental and preparatory workshops over the summer. At the end of the programme (October) our group will then go abroad to a developing country and deliver a social action programme there. We will be travelling to Colombia in South America. We will be working on a coffee farm and teaching English language sessions in a local school, engaging with local people, learning about their culture, food, traditions and history as well as sharing knowledge and learning from our own perspectives and experiences. The programme will be designed to empower us, as a team and as young individuals to make a difference in our lives and the lives of others . It will build our confidence and our social skills with workshops covering themes such as equality and diversity in society, personal identity, social responsibility and global citizenship. It will give us a once in a lifetime experience to go abroad on a unique program and then share our experiences with other young people in the Medway area upon our return to the U.K.
