    Become a Be the Change volunteer guide and make a real difference to young people in Sussex…      

    What is Be the Change?

    Be the Change was created in 2015, in response to feedback from employers about recruitment challenges and the gaps they were experiencing in their talent pipelines.

    This particular project is taking place in partnership with Sussex universities and colleges to help encourage students to make the most of all of the opportunities available to them and in turn realise their full potential.
    Be the Change encompasses a range of inspirational events designed to support students who may face challenges and difficulties in school or college. Focusing on happiness, confidence, hope, relationships and employability, Be the Change encourages students to identify their personal barriers to success, and helps them overcome them.

    Students are invited to look at the influences of others, peer pressure and the culture of conformity and will reflect on barriers to success, their attitude and behaviour and the impact this has on themselves and others.

    Be the Change positively impacts and shapes our future learners and workers at the same time as offering organisations an opportunity to make a tangible, measurable and life changing difference to local young people by focusing on qualities and life skills that support qualifications and success.

    How can YOU get involved?
    We are running two one day Be the Change conferences for 17-19 year olds in May 2017 and we need support from volunteers to make these days a success.

    What does a Be the Change Guide Do?
    As a volunteer guide, you will:

    Play a part in helping students to understand what positive changes they need to make to realise their aspirations and what qualities are required to be successful. 

    Be supported by the Be the Change team to share your experiences and stories of your education and career journey’s with students. 

    Work in a mixture of full room activities, large group and smaller group breakouts to encourage students to work with others and share their day-to-day challenges, their views and their aspirations for the future. 

    No previous mentoring experience is necessary and the team will facilitate each session throughout the day.

    You are not required to bring anything with you, other than a willingness to share your experiences. Most importantly, we ask that you are enthusiastic, positive and inspirational role models.
    Click here to watch Be the Change in action

    Choose to volunteer at one or more of the following events in May 2017

    Tuesday 16th May @  Worthing Assmbley Hall 
    Thursday 18th May @ The Hastings Centre

    Both events run 8:15am until 4pm with refreshments and lunch provided

    Discover Worthing - Summer 2017

    With its beautiful seafront, spectacular green spaces, thriving cultural activities and friendly welcome there is only one message this summer for would-be visitors: Discover Worthing.

    That is the slogan under which the borough council is about to launch a major marketing campaign aimed at increasing the numbers of visitors.

    Already tourism officers are pulling together an extensive and exciting programme of events as well as enforcing the message that Worthing has the best of all worlds: blue skies, blue seas and green spaces.

    Discover Worthing will be backed by the launch of a new website, a major advertising campaign and a number of gold star events throughout the summer.

    Families, adventurers and those just seeking to kick back will be catered for as the council continues to up its game on attracting visitors to sample the delights of the borough.

    Latest figures estimate that some 4.4 million day and staying visitors spending approximately £138 million a year come to Worthing.

    This year’s plans include:

    ·         Learn how to paddle board and kite surf events

    ·         Beachcombing for all the family trails

    ·         Summer of Circus Festival

    ·         StreetVelodrome cycle race in June

    ·         A seafront bike hire scheme.

    As part of the council’s £189,000 tourism budget work is still ongoing on many of these and other schemes to ensure there is something for everyone this year either as daytrippers or for those staying longer.

    Up to 100 Worthing tourism stakeholders including hoteliers, retailers, gallery owners and restaurateurs were involved in discussions about the new branding and given the opportunity to submit ideas on improving the offering for the 2017 season.

    Judy Fox, Worthing Borough Council’s Visitor Experience and Marketing Officer, part of the new Tourism & Events team, has been hard at work discussing with businesses what they would like to see being offered to visitors to the town.

    She said:”We are working hard to bring the programme of events and activities together under our new Discover Worthing brand which will launch in May.

    “We want to let people know that when they come here they can experience our great outdoors, get back to nature and away from the hustle and bustle or they can really get active in our great open spaces. There is something for everyone here.”

    Cllr Bryan Turner, executive member for regeneration, said: “Whether it be our theatres, our seafront or our green spaces we have a great offering in Worthing. Discover Worthing will help us significantly up our game.”
