Belle's Story


When we first met Belle, she was a shy when interacting with others and apprehensive about participating in Rising Futures. But by the end of the programme, Belle had really come out of her shell and improved her confidence, resilience and communication skills.

Through both coaching sessions at school and trips such as World of Work and Into the Wild, Belle was able to better express her opinions in front of others, face challenges, and sharpen her leadership skills to the point where she was even nominated to become Team Captain by her peers!

Belle increased her Confidence by 6 levels throughout the programme, particularly showing progress in the area:

'eager to try new challenges and explore unfamiliar places'

Belle increased her Resilience by 5 levels throughout the programme, particularly showing progress in the area:

'faces challenges and uncertainty with calmness and positivity'

Belle has shown tremendous personal growth over her time on the Rising Futures programme, and though she sometimes struggles to recognise her strengths, we are confident that her talents will develop further by continuing to self-coach and using the lessons she learned in Rising Futures in her day-to-day life.

Rising Futures is a high-impact programme, designed to support targeted students to develop their confidence, resilience and self-esteem. Through personalised coaching and inspirational trips, students develop key skills to enable them to be successful in the classroom and beyond.
