It was fantastic to join with @Cov_DBE and see all that is being achieved in their YLA projects. We heard from some very passionate young leaders sharing all the small things we can do to make big changes and why this is so important #bethechange https://twitter.com/Cov_DBE/status/1526281007275642887
Great also to hear teachers speak so confidently about the impact the YLA programme & ICONS module are having on pupils. This is all part of our @CofE_Cov @CoventryFaith Growing Faith project, begun during the early days of the pandemic & now bearing fruit 🍎
Jen had the privilege of joining the fabulous @ABYyouthtrust team in visiting the two Nuneaton schools in our Nuneaton-Bedworth Young Leaders Project in conjunction with @ICONSCoventryC1. Such a great few hours hearing children articulate their self-reflections as leaders 👌🏻🙌🏻
