Ignite (Young People)

Suitable for:
Ages 13-17
Best time to deliver:
Throughout the Year
12 Modules (Delivered over 3, 6, or 12 Weeks)


The Ignite programme consists of 12 themed interconnected modules. It is grounded in the Amazing Brains 'Resilience Framework.' Resilience describes a person's capacity to cope with changes and challenges and to bounce back from adversity. There is a common misconception that resilience is a feature of someone's innate personality. In fact, resilience and adversity are distributed unequally across the population and are also related to broader socio-economic inequalities. Quite often those young people who face the most adversity are those least likely to have the resources to cope. This programme is designed to enable our most vulnerable young people to develop the social, emotional and academic resilience necessary to succeed in life.  It is a holistic programme, ‘jam-packed’ with practical, kinaesthetic and stimulating activities designed to inspire and ignite a passion for learning and taking on challenges.
