Together Activity Group
The Together Activity Group (TAG) is a new project started by Sunderland College to create more opportunities for students from all backgrounds. The aim of TAG is to help reduce the isolation of individuals, improve the physical health and emotional well-being of individuals and increase the employability of volunteers through training and work experience.
It was highlighted to us, that TAG wanted the young people they work with to be involved in some musical activities. To help with this, we have been running a workshop at Bede College to involve young people in learning how to play different types of instruments including guitars and djembes. Through these workshops, the students have developed new skills, worked as a team and built bonds with our members of staff they have worked with.
“The workshops delivered were a huge success and all participants were keen and excited to join in with the activities. Thus providing a warm and pleasant atmosphere.”
