Talent Within You: No Boundaries

Our vision is:

All humans have unleashed their niches and are living purposeful, happy lives.

Our mission is: 

We use our own talents to enable children aged 14-16 to discover and nurture their talents:

  1. For those children who haven’t yet discovered their talent, they may apply to attend our eight month workshop programme run by volunteer coaches. At the end of the programme, children will become talented children with purpose and will be offered opportunities to develop their talent and lead a fulfilling life.
  2. Talent Within You: No Boundaries is called such because we have evidence that children who are talented in Maths are also talented in Music and they should not have to choose. We don’t believe there are any boundaries on talent.
  3. Once children have successfully discovered and nurtured their talent, they become Peer Buddies (mentors) to new buddy members. Peer Buddy membership fee is free. This is to encourage long term partnerships with our beneficiaries for the good of everyone who wants to achieve our vision.
  4. Everyone at Talent Within You works on a voluntary basis and their hours will be recorded and presented on a certificate annually.
  5. We will work with the business community and voluntary organisations on an international, national, regional and local basis so we can reach more children and increase our impact. We will do this by working with the business community.

Our values are:

  • Everyone has a talent. It’s a matter of discovering it, nurturing it, strengthening it.
  • Talent Within You creates shared valued at all times.
  • Everyone at Talent Within You is encouraged to become a peer mentor; children, coaches, volunteers.
  • Talent Within You is a Learning Organisation and we promote action learning.
  • Everyone who is part of Talent Within You will respect others, respect the club and respect themselves.

 

Discover your talent

We will be running eight workshops from October which will help children to find their talent. At the end of eight months, children will be awarded a certificate. We will find opportunities for members to use and strengthen their talent through volunteering and internships.

Nurture your talent

Now you’ve discovered your talent, our fun workshops will help you to explore opportunities to nurture your talent. Each workshop will focus on a different element including attitude, leadership, effort, nurturing and building your personal brand trust. Find out how our workshops work.
