Further Envision Success

We have had two teams of students taking part in Bristol’s Community-Apprentice this year. This inter-school competition is a bit like The Apprentice on television.  Young people have to develop, and, crucially, demonstrate skills and personal qualities whilst managing their own projects. In this case, however, young people compete to benefit the community, rather than make the most profit.

Our teams have worked really hard since September researching problems, identifying an issue, planning what to do about it and overcoming a range of problems to make it happen. On Thursday 29th June the Mayor invited all 21 teams taking part across Bristol to City Hall to celebrate their graduation from the programme. Collectively this year the teams have volunteered over 7,000 hours to help their communities. Addressing the students in a film at the event Mayor Marvin Rees said:

“The good news is that you have all achieved… You have all demonstrated the kinds of qualities I look for in city leaders, the kind of people I want working alongside me”

In June, team 'We Are All One' competed against 3 other schools in the Community-Apprentice Boardroom Final hosted by the University of Bristol. The team were selected from all the teams across the city to take part as they proved they had made a big difference to their community and themselves. The competition was the toughest yet and although the team missed out on being chosen as the winners the Mayor praised them for mentoring younger students at their school who are new to the country.

Our other team, Anti-Discrimination were nominated for the Teamwork award at the Graduation Event. Michele Montouri from the team was chosen out of all 150 young people on the programme to win the Outstanding Individual Contribution Award for his commitment and leadership on the programme
