The Aquinas Foundation, A youth orientated organisation based in Nottingham works extensively to provide young people with various activities, workshops and recreational programmes with the aim of inspiring the students to begin enjoying their education as well as open other avenues for other possible future professions.
The main target for the foundation is working through schools in tandem with the children’s education in order to find a resolution for problems that affect youths today, such as petty crime, truancy and illiteracy. The Aquinas Foundation understand that school can be an unappealing prospect to a large number of young people, which is why they offer a vast range of extracurricular activities, from sports to self defence classes, to cooking lessons with Michelin Star chefs and theatre workshops. This list of is ever expanding to allow every type of young person to fully enjoy their education and their school experience.
Aquinas’ method is to begin influencing the youth before the problems develop in primary schools, which helps them to develop initiatives for students in secondary schools. They then invite these students to become ambassadors for Aquinas by sharing their experiences with those students who require the most help and guidance.
The Aquinas foundation has teamed up with Land Rover Bikes as part of an initiative to introduce cycling to schools on a much larger scale. As part of this scheme, English Footballer Jermaine Jenas recently travelled to the Bullwell Academy in Nottingham on behalf of the Aquinas foundation, and gifted the academy two Land Rover mountain bikes to be used as rewards for positive behaviour at the end of the year.
This is part of the cycling initiative that The Aquinas Foundation provides for young people, which has been gaining more and more publicity. This is due in no small part to the success of Team GB at the 2012 Olympic Games, which has since resulted in a massive rise in cycling and cycle schemes across all age groups.
Land Rover Bikes are also a part of the Government backed Ride to Work Scheme enabling anyone in employment to obtain a bike and any other associated accessories (such as helmet, lock, lights etc) at a substantially reduced price – typical savings are around 43% with some able to save almost 50%.
