Launch Pad is all about helping you take control of your future. At Teen Spirit we understand that HIV can make life incredibly challenging and dreams and aspirations seem beyond reach.
Many young people are left to struggle on, unable to ask for the support that would make a difference. We want to help every member of Teen Spirit to have the confidence and self-belief to strive for clear goals. We want to support you in reaching them.
Launch Pad is an opportunity for you to get vital input to help move forward with work, school and college. Launch Pad is a dedicated programme running each Saturday that provides the space, resources, expertise and consistency to help every Teen Spirit member to aspire and achieve.
When you join Teen Spirit we like to get a picture of where you are at with studies or work. These are some of the ways members can access Launch Pad:
Launch Pad Drop-In:
Launch Pad Drop-In sessions provide tutors to help you through coursework, homework or revision on a 1:1 basis.
Launch Pad ‘Get Ahead’ Sessions:
There workshops are geared to providing tailored advice and support. They cover things like choosing your options, applying to university, study skills, exam preparation and revision techniques.
These workshops are a chance to meet experts from different professions to help you broaden your horizons and develop your own formula for success.
Your formula for success might require having one special person who can be there to help you overcome your obstacles.
Launch Pad is developing a mentoring programme to match young people with trained mentors to be there as their own personal motivator, sounding board, organiser, advisor, experts… or whatever is required.
Mentors bring personal and professional experience as a priceless resource that is at the disposal of Teen Spirit members.
Through this page Teen Spirit members can access targeted, expert academic support.
