5 Reasons to book this Project.
Teamwork and leadership skills
All the students need to work as part of a team and this is established from day one of the project. Also taking a lead in building and repairing bikes as well as helping others on the project is encouraged from the very start of the project.
Sense of achievement and pride
To be able to repair and build your own bike as well as learn a new skill helps build this
Learning a new skill set
We have had many students who have gone on to establish their own projects or even start their own businesses after they have completed this course.
Building a connection with local communities and establishing a sense of belonging
All projects are run within the students own communities and help bridge barriers and bring different groups together. We begin to see friendships and partnerships made and a sense of belonging and pride in their won community being established within the students who take part.
Building Confidence and Self Esteem
We often see confidence sky rocket in the students who take part in this course the fact that they have completed a task that they set out to do in the beginning of the course will cross over to any task they will set for themselves and will help with any goals they want to set in their future.
