Graduates in action

Since January,Challenge graduates have formed over 13 Community Action Teams. Community action teams are social action projects led by graduates passionate about tackling a specific issue within their local area. Teams receive training and support from O2 and our year round graduate programme, The Challenge Society, to help turn their ideas into reality.

Three Peaks Challenge

Money raised will be donated to The Challenge Society to enable graduates and their friends to stay involved in social action projects similar to those highlighted in this newsletter.

Earlier this year, we received funding from Heathrow Community Fund (part of BAA Communities Trust) to enable young people from Hillingdon, Ealing and Hounslow to take part in our programmes. In addition to funding, staff have also played a number of active roles in our summer programme.

Case study: Our Place Community Hub

On Saturday 15th and Sunday 16th September, young people joined forces with volunteers and service users of Our Place Community Hub in Sutton Coldfield to transform an outdoor area of tarmac into a spectacular community garden as part of a Real Challenge Action project.

This month young people have been working on a number of social action projects. This part of The Challenge programme is called Real Challenge Action (RCA) as young people implement, within their local community, projects they planned during the summer.

A note from our CEO

 I hope you thoroughly enjoyed the Olympic and Paralympic Games. What I found the most encouraging was the ability of the Games to galvanize a sense of community between people from different backgrounds. In our own way, this is exactly what we are trying to do with our programmes The Challenge and The Challenge Society.
