Inner-city youths are to be given the chance to become ski instructors

Youngsters from Bromley could be heading to the ski slopes thanks to a charity’s efforts to get inner-city youngsters into snowsports.

An upcoming programme run by Snow Camp will see youngsters from the borough develop their skiing and snowboarding skills through a six-day programme held at The Snow Centre, Hemel Hempstead, as they work towards ASDAN Sports and Fitness Award accreditation.

The youngsters will then take part in life skills and ski industry sessions to expose them to the wide range of career opportunities in snowsports.

Snow-Camp are looking for youth projects in Bromley to get involved. The charity is exhibiting at The Ski and Snowboard Show, between October 27 and 30 at Battersea Evolution.

Gavin Hanmer, London Programme Manager, said: “We’re really excited to be able to offer programmes to help inner-city youth in Bromley.

“Our life skills sessions are designed to help young people reflect upon the skills they are demonstrating on the slopes, as well as how to respond to challenges and setting goals for the future.

“Young people gain a recognised accredited qualification for each individual course, work experience, volunteering and employment opportunities within the snowsports industry offered at different stages.”
