Our Theory of Change illustrates what we do, why we do it and how this gives our Young People the best chance to get into sustained Education, Employment or Training once they become RugbyWorks alumni!
Our young people involved with our interventions tend to have their best experience with us outside the classroom and learning about rugby. Through our rugby active based learning we help to develop key life skills that we still stay with them for the rest of their lives.
Essential life skills such as communication, teamwork, problem-solving, self-belief and self-management will allow our young people to make the right decisions for their futures.
Young people are often not exposed to enough opportunities to show them what is the right pathway for their future. Without these, they can often be left with little knowledge or guidance on to make the right step following school.
What we will do is offer them that exposure to future options, through our career taster days, work experience opportunities and bespoke CV and career workshops so young people can raise their aspirations so they can start to believe they can achieve.
In the current social climate, young people are less active than they have been previously. That is why it is essential that we offer those we support the opportunity to develop life-long habits to improve and maintain their physical health as well as creating potential pathways into community sport.
We want to ensure that the young people we support are equipped to deal with the challenges of the modern world.
Through our interventions featuring a host of group, one-to-one and athlete mentoring sessions, we will help our young people to develop resilience, personal responsibility and an understanding of mental wellbeing.
