“The programme taught me that my voice matters and that I matter.” – Young person

 Say It With Your Chest came to our school and they worked with several students. Micah in particular made significant progress and has continued on a successful path and is able to reflect on his behaviours. If we found funding we would welcome back Say It With Your Chest to work with our young people – Debbie Sycamore, part of the senior leadership team at Cavendish school

“ I learnt why I get so many behaviour points, this really helped me to reflect on my behaviour and improve it.” – Young person

Personal Development Workshops

“Say It With Your Chest did an amazing job and we all came away feeling that little bit lighter.The workshop reminded us to celebrate the small challenges that we overcome on a daily basis and to recognise the skills that we all have and are constantly using. The workshop helped to uncover the thought processes that go into overcoming challenges and showed our young people how resilient they are. The young people have shown a lot of enthusiasm following the workshop and are keen to attend more. ” – Emma Shenton, Deputy Manager at One Housing Association

“ The workshop taught me that we are all dealing with a lot of challenges but we all have strengths that allow us to overcome them and learn from them. We need to recognise the skills that we have and be kinder to ourselves. ” – Young person

“Say It With Your Chest, ran an online workshop with our young people from the London Violence reduction unit’s youth action group. The online workshop was different from other sessions that the young people have attended. This is because it was really engaging using a variety of creative tools and games/exercises to capture the attention of the group as well as deliver messages in a way that leaves an impact. Say It With Your Chest’s approach was relaxed, friendly, relatable and real! There was a fine balance of material that helped to drive home the intended outcomes.” – Jerome Harvey- Agyei , Children & Young people Participation officer at the Mayor of London’s Violence reduction Unit

Public Speaking

“Thank you so much for coming to our school! The students really gained a lot of insight into the topic of school exclusions. The talk has inspired lots of discussion in lessons since! It is so good for them to have a chance to speak with someone other than their teacher about the topics that they learn about in class. The talk has helped to broaden the students minds about what barriers and challenges young people across the city face during their education.” – Jasmine John, sociology teacher at Fortismere school

“Say It With Your Chest are powerful speakers that have a passion for creating the means to improve the lives of our most disadvantaged children.” – The Association of Panel Members
