Community Day with ELBA

This summer, for the third year in a row, we had a successful Community Day with volunteers from ELBA, State Street, Nomura as well as 9 of our Coaches and 20 ThinkForward young people who got their sleeves rolled up and got stuck in making a difference community.

Volunteers fist worked on painting a mural followed by mock interview sessions.

One young person said of the interviews, “It felt like a REAL interview. I learnt so much from everyone today.

Another young person said of the session, “I feel more confident speaking in front of bigger groups now“.

Despite the rain, the day was a great success and special thanks to ELBA for organising as such events go a long way in helping the residents and the young people who attended.

The local community centre in Tower Hamlet’s whose mural they painted said, “the  mural has made a huge difference to the wall.  We have already had many good comments  about it making a difference, and how nice the colours are.”
