2017 has seen some further developments to MXCP and continuation of the ‘Today’s the Day’ course! Young people who have completed the course have gone on to see excellent results; progressing into college, volunteering and getting into employment. We also have a new team member who has previously completed one of our courses. MXCP can now say that it has 50% of its staff coming from our own courses! New changes have also been made to our facilities with our training track having a new all-weather surface added, allowing us to continue using Motocross in the project throughout the Great British weather. Plus, we have added brand new toilet facilities which include a Male, Female and Disabled toilet including shower amenities. MXCP also gained funding for more learning resources which include tablets and a new laptop which have become useful aids in the classroom. We are also in the works for starting a course exclusively for young women; breaking barriers for them to take part in mechanics, working on citizenship, sports and fitness and off-road riding. One last note! We still have available slots for our Motocross Experience August sessions, please take advantage before the summer ends.
Another year and yet more exciting times, we are extremely proud to have gained funding which has enabled us to continue delivering the long standing work we have been undertaking for the past 15 years. We are now also running "Today's The Day" courses and Coalfields Regeneration for young people aged 16 up. Looking ahead at new partnerships in the summer, we're reaching out to other European youth organisations through the European Social Fund (ESF) and as always, the heart of the project is for young people to achieve, be motivated and enjoy learning! In addition, we are still running our Motocross Experience sessions on selected Saturday's for young people up to the age of 17 (weather permitting as always).
Hello all, this is a brief summary of 2015 at the MXCP. From the summer we have completed our contract with CYC (Cyber Youth Connection) and the young people have achieved amazing things. We have been constantly applying for grants and hope to be successful in 2016 to communicate our goals. There are numerous applicants on the ETE course for September 2015 and we have the usual ASDAN Courses running as well. For future updates and more info, be sure to visit our Facebook page.
Winter is on the horizon but we've still got a lot on the way, such as; AGM, Margate Beach Race, NEC Dirt Bike Show, Marlowe Pantomime and more. Stay tuned for details.
