Warriors Community Foundation are looking to positively influence the futures of 16 to 21-year-olds through the award-winning HITZ programme.
HITZ is an education and employability initiative which uses rugby’s core values of teamwork, respect, enjoyment, discipline and sportsmanship to help young people who are not in education, training or employment.
HITZ provides courses which combine sport – including rugby, football and frisbee – with learning in the classroom to help teenagers to maximise their potential by getting them back into education training, apprenticeships or employment.
Activity days such as paintballing, team-building and ten pin bowling are also included in the programme.
The new Employability Level One course, will start on Monday March 2 and will run from Monday to Thursday until July at Sixways Stadium. The course will include free lunches and a HITZ T-shirt.
HITZ also offers mentoring and home support for learners who may be facing problems of any kind. In recent years Warriors Community Foundation’s HITZ programme has helped to turn around the lives of people with mental, physical or behavioural problems, homeless people, drug users and those who may just be struggling with the transition into adult life.
If you are aged between 16 and 21, have no more than three GCSEs and are interested in joining the Warriors Community Foundation HITZ programme please contact Angus Laing at: email@example.com or on 07525 810526 for an informal discussion.
