Dare to Dream team up with Focus Group to inspire the next generation

Dare to Dream team up with Focus Group

Dare to Dream is an inspirational programme challenging young people to change the way they think. Working in partnership with leading organisations from the private, public and voluntary sectors, the Love Local Jobs Foundation will be supporting local schools and giving young people the confidence they need to fulfil their potential.

Delivered around core themes of self-awareness, mindset, gratitude, resilience, teamwork and employability the inspirational speaker and business mentors use their own experiences and extensive knowledge to drive and motivate young people.

Focus Group, a successful Shoreham-based business established in 2003 by local entrepreneurs Chris Goodman and Ralph Gilbert, is now one of the UK’s leading providers of essential business technology and employs over 600 people. Its ethos revolves around a firm belief that people are at the heart of a successful business so is committed to creating opportunities for its teams and building relationships in the local community.

Programme Lead, Jack the Lad, the well-known former host of the Breakfast Show on Heart FM, who is now on air with More Radio, will be presenting his own personal journey, as well as listening to and understanding the incredible stories from the local next generation and future work force.

Focus Group will be supporting Shoreham Academy and helping to enable an entire cohort of year 10 students to Dare to Dream. Alongside Jack’s personal narrative and inspirational deliveries, volunteers from Focus Group will mentor 15 students who are currently disengaged but believed to have great potential. Participating as mentors on the programme the volunteers will help to promote and reinforce core themes that are central to wellbeing, employability and a positive future.
