Young people say it’s like stepping into another world.
Unless you’ve actually seen PAUSE it’s hard to imagine just how different it is. Three hours ago two classrooms contained neat rows of desks, piles of text books on the windowsills and a lesson still visible on one of the smart-boards. Now there are more than twenty activities creating space for young people to ask big questions and to reflect on their hopes and dreams, their values, their futures, their lives.
Young people really need this time to stop and reflect. They tell us they find it in PAUSE.
