Sherique homework club - Track Academy
Young people who grow up in disadvantaged areas can sometimes end up believing that they are just the product of their local circumstances and lose faith in their ability to affect their own lives. This project supports the personal development of young people living in North West London. It uses a mixture of study support, athlete development and mentoring to help participants realise that their attitudes define their chances in life. The academy looks to address issues such as truancy, antisocial behaviour, poor discipline, poor concentration and obesity, whilst providing positive role models and pathways for gifted athletes to succeed. It aims to increase participants’ academic performance, confidence and self-esteem, as well as their employment opportunities and physical health and fitness.
