Citizenship became a compulsory subject in schools for pupils aged 11 to 16 in September 2002, with the overall aim of developing young people to become successful learners, confident individuals and responsible citizens who make a positive contribution to society.
Back for its third year running, the award winning Citizenship for Life program aims to provide young people within Cornwall, who are aged 13-14 years and subject to certain difficulties in their lives, with exciting and inspirational activities designed to influence, motivate and educate them about aspects of life and work.
As one of their many trips out, the young people and their mentors came down to the Health and Wellbeing Innovation Centre in Truro for a day of workshops and talks about health, ranging from sun care to health in schools. The Arts for Health Cornwall team delivered a workshop to encourage and broaden the teenagers’ ideas on what makes you healthy.
If you are new to Citizenship may I encourage you to find out more and see if you can play some role in helping the young people of Cornwall have opportunities for the future.
The success of Citizenship for Life really is in the hands of the local community as the core twelve month programmes are privately funded by local businesses, private investors and other organisations.
The Citizenship for Life programme for 2013/14 has now finally ended with a gala event to celebrate the success of the programme. It has been a year of blood, sweat and the occasional tears for two groups of 12 students and 12 mentors. The year has gone at a blistering pace and started for the Mullion, Falmouth and Penryn Schools (Newquay was the other group) with a visit to RNAS Culdrose. It has gone by in a flash, and it only seems a month or two ago when it all started.
