Aberdeen Foyer’s Peterhead Prince’s Trust Team 35 held their final presentation ceremony at the Apex Church recently.

The evening, which was attended by over 100 family, friends and partnership agencies, was the last challenge for Team 35.

They delivered presentations about what they did during their time on the programme and told their audience about their own personal journeys, while also involving the audience in games and also a Prince’s Trust first, a proposal by one of the Team Members.

The fifteen team members have now finished the programme with nationally recognised qualifications.

Over the last 12 weeks, the team attended a 5-day outward bounds course in Newtonmore, carried out a 3-week community project at Barclay Park Pavilion and successfully completed 2-week work placements.

They also completed their Team Challenge, in which they worked at Buchanhaven and Meethill Primary Schools running Easter art and craft activities with pupils.

They also spent a day at the Apex Church making Soups and Sweets for the local community to enjoy and held a very successful Easter egg hunt all over Peterhead.

The Team’s presentation marked the end of their journeys on the Prince’s Trust Team Programme and they wish to take this opportunity to express thanks to CNR International, work placement providers and organisations and local people who have supported them over the last 12 weeks.

The Prince’s Trust Team Programme is delivered in North Aberdeenshire by Aberdeen Foyer in partnership with North East Scotland College.

The programme is a 12-week self development course for 16 – 25 year olds, designed to increase confidence, motivation and raise self-esteem.

The next team will begin on Monday, May 18.
