Make a difference and sign up for the 2020 lifestyle challenge
Calling all students to sign up for the North Yorkshire Police Lifestyle Challenge – it will make your summer holidays fun and exciting, could lead to you winning a fantastic prize and is guaranteed to make a difference in your community! You need to register HERE
by 31st July and if you have a few hours to spare each week, then your mission (should you choose to accept it!), is to take one of five challenges – volunteer hero, community, crime buster, care and respect or educating others – last year, the ‘Fabulous Four’ – our students Joshua and Philippa Kind, Lucy Denton and Hannah Horton – won a Lifestyle award for clearing out and replanting a neglected and historical garden in Crakehall. The challenge is open to all 8 – 18 year olds who are resident in North Yorkshire and, adhering to social distancing guidelines, the young people can get together with up to six of their friends – either virtually or in person.
Joshua and Philippa’s Mum said: “The Lifestyle Challenge gave them a focus during the holiday and with other local teams also involved they became quite competitive. It was interesting to watch how their project developed and how they evolved as a team playing to each of their individual strengths, becoming more confident as time went on.
“They not only had to agree on a project idea but also had to document their discussions/meetings, contact relevant organisations, liaise with the public and keep in contact with the police who supported them throughout. The Lifestyle Challenge improves confidence and certainly teaches those all- important life skills”.
