“CalibreMinds clearly have a passion for working to improve the lives of young people and their input on the Mentoring project has been invaluable. Dean and his team facilitate mentoring sessions and have made a positive impression on the young people involved in the project. I am looking forward to strengthening our partnership with CalibreMinds in the future”.
Director of Bonny Downs Community Association
"CalibreMinds has shown me how much hard determination and focus can take you. Some people use figures like Barack Obama, but what Mr Alfred has done has been an inspiration to me”.
“Everyone thoroughly enjoyed it. Most of the young people would be known as NEET, yet they not only enjoyed the workshop but have since asked for CalibreMinds support”.
“My expectations were exceeded. It has given me positive feelings and a different view of CalibreMinds”.
Senior Youth Support Worker, Stepping Up Youth
“CalibreMinds clearly challenged the groups they worked with to reflect on their personal and social situations...…Student feedback was all positive. Many said they wished it (the workshops) could continue”.
“I expected CalibreMinds to engage with the groups, challenge their perceptions and empower them to construct applicable models of personal change. CalibreMinds delivered exactly that and much more”.
Hackney Free and Parochial School, Health Hut Manager
“The young people that attended the Crime Awareness workshop rated the delivery, instructors and subject content of the workshop high in their evaluation of courses they undertook while on the peer training project. They also informed us that they would like CalibreMinds to deliver further workshops, as they made the session interactive and interesting”.
“…the workshop was well planned, organised and smooth in delivery all the young people were engaged and interacted well throughout the workshop”.
Development Manager, Skyway Youth Charity
“The sessions you ran on a Wednesday were superb. The students were engaged and focused. They would frequently come and ask myself or Lizzie each week when you would be back- that says a lot!”.
“The outing that you very kindly organised at the end of the first groups' sessions, was very well received and gave the students something to feel very proud of and good about - that doesn't happen very often.”
“Thank you Dean, for all that you have done and hopefully we can work together again in the future - I would very much like that.”
Inclusion Manager, Bridge Academy School
“I was very confident that our work together would amount to a success and have a long term impact on the lives of those involved. Many of the young people said they literally didn’t want it to end!”.
Youth Development worker, Street Level Inclusion Project
“I would like to thank CalibreMinds for their significant contribution to the life of the school and I look forward to working with this organisation in the future”.
Manager of the Learning Support Unit, Raines Foundation School
“I would like to thank CalibreMinds for all the help they have given myself and the group. CalibreMinds has helped us with rehearsal, refreshments, admin and more. I am grateful for the partnership.”
