Investors in Young People (IIYP) Feedback Report
Written by Jim Feenan on 12/05/2016
“Learning and development is core to Fighting Chance Scotland in the way it develops its young people. A formal coaching qualification is undertaken and there is the opportunity to grow and develop with interactions in the judo classes”.
The second extract refers to the young people we are taking judo to in the high schools where we run the Yellow Belt Challenge:
“There is no doubt of the impact that you make with your young people in involving them with the development of other young people through Fighting Chance. The impact was clear in that the recipients of your judo lessons and both teachers and young people stated:
It’s taught me resilience, perseverance, discipline and I am learning all the time .. They enjoyed the sessions – had asked for more sessions .. They were calmer .. They had more respect for others ..They see a difference in themselves .. They are more self-aware .. They listen more .. They thought before reacting in certain situations .. Peer to peer support Attention enhancement .. There was a difference in behaviour in class .. They were clearer about future potential / career choices and their own abilities
You truly make a massive difference to the lives of young people through judo interaction and display your values through all people communication and involvement.”
