Face Forward and The Colour Works Foundation collaborate to increase young people's self-belief

Last month, seven Face Forward young people participated in The Colour Works Foundation’s building self-belief course.

The foundation runs an eight-session programme based on the Colour Model. The model is a colour profiling tool to equip young people with tools that build self-confidence and resilience. 

A young person described their experience by saying, ‘it pushed me outside of my comfort zone and gave me more confidence.’ Another said that they came to an ‘understanding that not everyone acts and thinks the same.’

The course is designed to develop strong interpersonal and communication skills so that young people can make positive life choices for themselves. They covered topics such as self-awareness, self-management, understanding others, relationship skills and decision making.

Participants got to learn more about themselves including their strengths and weaknesses, emotional management and communication techniques. The group were a diverse mix of characters with differing needs but were all able to engage well with the material.

Dom Weir, Lead Adviser, said: “We were really impressed with the young people’s resilience and attitude to overcome their fears and anxieties and how they engaged with The Colour Works programme.

“By the end of it we felt that they had all gained a worthwhile experience and had taken away the knowledge and the tools to increase their self-awareness, so that they can look at the next steps to move forward.”

Some of the results from the course shows that the group’s ability to describe their strengths and weaknesses increased by 80%. Additionally, those that felt that they gained the tools to understand and deal with strong emotions increased by 72%. Overall the groups confidence improved by 79%.

The course was based at our partner SWARC’s training centre. To celebrate the young people, they held a presentation lunch at Jerk Hut where the young people received their course certificates. 

Face Forward is passionate about seeing young people gain the confidence to make positive decisions that can allow them to move forward.
