We are delighted to announce that our Young Ambassador Elspeth, 17 years old, has now completed Level 2 of our Young Ambassadors Programme becoming the first Young Ambassador to complete the entire programme!

Level 2 of the programme offers the unique opportunity to complete the prestigious Dale Carnegie Course. Designed to equip you with the communication and human relation skills required to be successful in any setting, this world famous programme of self-development helps the leaders of tomorrow leverage their skills so they can strengthen relationships between colleagues, solve problems, create collaborative cultures, boost morale and motivation within teams, and ultimately deliver outstanding results in any area of concentration.

As a charity, are extremely proud of Elspeth and have worked alongside her to learn from her experience to best support our future participants.

Elspeth shared this reflection on the experience,

“This was an experience which I wouldn’t have gained in any other way, from travelling to London each day by train on my own to meeting new people at different life stages to me. I went into the course with the mindset that I’m ‘not going to see these people again,’ so what Do I have to lose?!

I pushed myself outside of my comfort zone and found that I had become more confident when talking and I realised that there was value in what I have to say.

 The experience made me realise that even adults don’t have it all together, we were all there for the same reasons!

 At the beginning of May I attended our 25th birthday celebration at Alton Towers, I found that the Dale Carnegie Course impacted how I engaged and interacted with others at this event! I found it easier to answer questions and share my story, easier to attend the event itself and easier to meet new people!”

Congratulations from all of us at Caring Matters Now for completing the Young Ambassadors Programme and for all your hard work and determination! We trust that the experience gained from our Young Ambassadors Programme will set you up for life in both work and relationships and will set you apart!
