The North Kelvin Academy is the North Kelvin Sports Development Group’s brand-new afterschool sports project that was launched in January 2018 at three delivery sites across the north-west of Glasgow.
The North Kelvin Academy is the organisations largest community project to date. Funded through the European Social Fund and the Scottish Government the project is aimed at empowering our local community. In providing afterschool support to families who are working or looking to get back to work our goal is to create a fun – learning environment where children can develop skills to equip themselves as they progress in their lives.
HOW IT WORKS
The project will use our successful delivery model of promoting personal and social development by promoting engaging and active learning alongside sports participation.
North Kelvin Staff will work with schools daily during curriculum time to deliver a range of health and wellbeing topics as well as learning about historical and current events that shape they way we think and act for the children to gain a better understanding of themselves.
These sessions have proven to be extremely popular in our many other successful projects as this entirely free service is delivered by respected staff who have developed positive relationships with the client group through sports participation in a relaxed and enjoyable environment.
