Newsletter
December 2015 Edition

Hello!  December is now upon us so this will be our last newsletter of 2015!  How quickly time flies.  As we begin to start wrapping up the year, getting festive and planning for 2016, let me start by saying thank you to all of those who have supported us, funded us and worked with us in 2015.  It truly has been a pleasure and I am very grateful.  We look forward to continuing our work with you and others come 2016, Michelle x

We appreciate how busy you are so thank you for taking the time to read this edition.  Do get in touch as we love hearing for you and are happy to help in whatever way we can!

Quote of the month: "It has long come to my attention that people of accomplishment rarely sat back and let things happen to them.  They went out and happened to things" Leonardo Da Vinci.
Resilience Programme

As part of the Resilience Programme, the Boxing Academy students experienced what it was like to have a mindful conversation with Mindfulness teacher and Find Your Spark associate Jamie Shavdia.  This was their penultimate week before they recognize and celebrate their dream and all their efforts next week.
also experienced the Resilience taster as part of their Ignite, employability and up-skilling event, which was a fun event to be a part of, with participants saying that they "learnt that they actually are pretty special" and that to "take every opportunity life gives them as they are the only ones who can change their futures"  They learnt that life is full of inevitable challenges and resilience is how you cope with it. 

If your school/organisation are interested in the Resilience programme, please contact us here.  We can come in and deliver a taster  before you commit to buy a whole programme and have our team on board ready and raring to deliver to your students/staff!
Positive News Publication
We had the honour of having an article written up about Find Your Spark and the work we do as part of the Good Business column.  The Good Business column catches up with people who are leading social change. It is created in collaboration with Impact Hub Islington, a co-working and business incubation space in London for socially-minded entrepreneurs.  To read the article in its entirety, click here.

Say hello to David Hancock, an MSc Career Coaching student from the University of East London and an educational coach at a boys school in Kent, seen here in the picture with Tuki.

So, that's it for another month!  If you found this newsletter of value please forward it to your friends/family and colleagues as Find Your Spark is currently looking to expand to Essex and we all know that the best way to get into new places is through personal recommendation.  I am committed to reaching out to more young people because I passionately believe that we can help make a difference to their lives. Thank you in advance for your help with making this a reality!
