Mentoring and Modelling

Helping put the pieces together

Steve Dewar and the Wiltshire YFC team deliver "Mentoring " sessions with students across secondary schools around the Devizes and Trowbridge areas. These sessions are lead by young people and the activities used allow for discussion, challenge and encouragement. We sometimes use model making to discover new skills, look at following instructions, paying attention to detail, needing patience  and creating something that brings a sense of achievement. At Potterne Youth Club we also use model making as an introduction to a new activity or development of an existing hobby for some of the teenagers. 

We are able to research the models, link them with other events such as World War Commemorations, RAF 100, developing technology and other interests such as motor cars, bikes etc

We are always on the look out for resources including unmade model kits, paints, brushes and equipment. If you would like to consider helping with any donations of skills or resources and enable us to be able to offer greater opportunities then please do not hesitate to get in touch with Steve.
