Being a young person between the ages of 16 and 18 is tough. People keep asking you who you are and who you want to be when you grow up. Add a caring responsibility into that mix and it’s even harder. How do you understanding who you are when you have someone else to look after.
Built from personal experience and qualitative research, the Little Dreamers Big Dreamers program runs for 6 months with 10-15 inspiring Young Carers aged 16-18 years old. The aim of the program is to empower young people to inspirational leaders in their community, developing resilience and the ability to identify their own values and what they stand for, while learning to balance the impossible.
Sounding interesting? The program is made up of two x two night retreats, monthly workshops, mentoring and fun events. Check out some more information about the different parts of the program below.
At the conclusion of the 6 month program, all participants will be eligible to apply for a Big Dreamers Scholarship to assist with education expenses (school fees, educational resources and/or extracurricular activities).
