COASTAL STATE OF MIND
Do you understand the dangers of swimming in open water?
"You must not lose faith in humanity. Humanity is an ocean; if a few drops of the ocean are dirty, the ocean does not become dirty."
- Mahatma Gandhi
• Open water and lakes are usually colder then water in a pool which can effect a child or adults swimming ability.
• Falling into freezing water can also result in shock which can lead to panic and drowning.
• The dangers of swimming in non-monitored water is that there could be items under the water like tyres, containers and other items abandoned that you could injure yourself on limiting your swimming.
• Plant life and seaweed is dangerous because you can get caught in it and be dragged under.
Rising tides and unexpected underwater currents are much stronger than the average swimmer and can carry you further away from the shore.
Our Time Youth Agency have teamed up with the local water sports company @aquasportscompany who are based at #mercerslake and @surreypolice to offer you a taster water sports experience in exchange for the following,
• DESIGN a warning poster - no swimming, no diving, and no paddling - get creative! Use words or pictures but MAKE IT STAND OUT!
The winner will receive a fully paid taster day with 3 members of their family and the poster will be used all over the site and be promoted through social media too.
This has got to be the biggest competition so far - what are you waiting for?
Competition closes Wednesday 15th July at 8pm and the winner will be picked by Sam the owner at Aqua Sports.
"I would so much like young people to have a sense of the gift that they are." – John Denver
A 6-week school based project delivered in partnership with Surrey Council & Surrey Police. This project was designed to raise awareness and get young people thinking about the consequences of getting involved in anti social behaviour, gangs, county lines, drug dealing, alcohol and drug use and the law relating to Anti Social crimes. It was a question & answer based session with interactive games and role play to put young people in the shoes of the public or peers.
INSTAGRAM LIVE YOUTH WORK SESSIONS

Online Safety and positive thinking is the most important thing right now in this lockdown, due to this I have created a Instagram platform and have been running live youth work sessions each week to help young people to keep connected and engaged in healthy content.
Young people are interviewed LIVE about what's affecting them in lockdown.
Guest speakers, Influencers and Professionals talking LIVE about what they do and how they do it.

"In order to carry a positive action we must develop here a positive vision."
– Dalai Lama
A 6-session, school-based mental health awareness project.
Each week we discuss a different topic around emotions and relationships.
Students are invited to talk about how the topic affects them, what the triggers are and then we look at coping strategies and how to implement them.
Emotions and relationships begin developing, evolving and emerging in young people. When this begins, it can be confusing and may cause feelings of alienation or isolation. This project targeted the confusion young people have to face and ensuring they don't have to face it alone.
Young people are offered additional support if needed and early hl;p referrals done where risk is identified.
MOVE 2 IMPROVE
"The biggest adventure you can ever take, is to live the life of your dreams."
– Oprah Winfrey
A school-based dance project with a twist! During the session we dance, laugh and sweat but we also mix it up with a bit of mindfulness and learn the benefit of taking a breath. We sit and chat about mental health issues like anxiety, low confidence or a negative body image and how that looks and feels... it is more than just a dance class!
Keeping active is a core element to keeping a peaceful and healthy mind, and helps balance the over-abundance of thoughts and feelings. Dancing as a group activity reinforces positive thinking and development.
