The Yes You Can Project

Posted on: 21/05/2019

Once again this year our Year 9 students have taken part in the 'Yes You Can' project. The project targets students from African, Caribbean and dual heritage backgrounds to engage in positive activities within the areas of performing arts, sports, healthy living, enterprise and future goals. The programme aims to empower students helping them to build confidence and raise aspiration and achievement. Seventeen students proudly graduated from the programme at De Montfort University and took part in a fabulous ceremony to celebrate their success.

Here’s what some of the students thought:

'The Yes You Can has taught me life lessons and I got to meet and talk to plenty of people who were involved in previous Yes You Can projects about what they are doing now.' – Rayan M

'Yes You Can has made me realise that I want to go to university and do better in my future.' – Troy B

'The best thing about the day was the feeling of pride when I graduated.' – Fabian P
