UK Alumni Programme training week staged at the London Academy

03/04/2017 – Seven organisations selected to be part of the Fight for Peace UK Alumni Programme (UK AP) have completed their training week at the London Academy. The training week represents the first phase of UK AP and involves representatives from new member organisations receiving intensive training in Fight for Peace’s holistic Five Pillars methodology.

During the five day course, participants complete a range of activities aimed at equipping them with organisational growth and development tools which allow them to deliver additional services beyond boxing and martial arts. The course also involves participants attending activities delivered at the London Academy and learning from and interacting with Fight for Peace young people and staff.

Upon completion of the course, participating organisations are able to adapt the Five Pillars methodology to their work with young people in their own communities, using their local knowledge and expertise and with continued support from Fight for Peace.

“We were delighted to see seven new organisations complete the UK AP training course and welcome them into the Fight for Peace family. All of those participating on the course are leaders in their communities and are doing excellent work with young people. UK AP exists to support the organisations to develop further by using Fight for Peace’s proven methodology, and we look forward to supporting them in this over the coming months”, said Ana Vacas, UK AP Trainer and Consultant.

Taking part in the course were: Carlton Police Boxing Academy, Del’s Fitness Centre (DFC), Durham Community Boxing Club, Lee Jones Boxing Club, Moss Side Fire Station Boxing Club, Sheffield City Boxing and The Safety Box.
