Phoenix fires up the youth of GwyneddPosted
Eleven local youngsters from Ysgol y Gader and Ysgol Ardudwy took part in North Wales Fire and Rescue Service's innovative Phoenix course last week.
The Phoenix project is a course designed to assist in redirecting the energy of young people towards productive and worthwhile activities that will assist in the integration of the individuals with their peers and their communities.
The course was held at Dolgellau Fire Station.
Pam Roberts, Phoenix Coordinator, said: "I am glad to say that this has been another great success for this exciting project.
“The aim of the course is to assist the youngsters in becoming more motivated and positive about themselves, which in turn has the effect of making them better citizens.
"We are hoping that these young people will feel that they have gained something positive from the Phoenix project and feel that it will be of benefit to them in the future.”
