|Email item||Print item||
Xaghra Scout Group has recently been given an EU Youth-in-Action grant to hold a Youth Initiative called “Build and Achieve – B.A. Scout.” This will be a Do-it-Yourself course in a number of manual skills such as pointing (tkahhil), grouting, flooring, tiling, plumbing and filming! These skills will be learnt in an informal fun manner guided by a professional in the topic.
The course is approximately 3 months long and it will take place every Saturday from 9am till noon at Xaghra Scout Group’s new Head-Quarters.
Xaghra Scout Group said that “attendance is very important and you must do your utmost effort to attend all sessions. The first meeting will take place this Saturday 19th July 2014 and will consist of a course information session followed by a Health and Safety session.”
“B.A. Scout will allow the participant to gain valuable basic skills that they will find essential when you own or rent a place. Apart from this, attendees will be given an EU-recognised certificate that can be showcased in their CV.”
It must be noted that the number of participants is limited and hence you are asked to register as soon as possible. Due to the nature of the project the selected participants must be between 15 to 28 years old.
Priority will be given to participants who are experiencing social obstacles and those with educational difficulties. This project will teach basic skills which can be done by both males and females, all youths are encouraged to take part.
