When we watch free runners or free climbers or base jumpers perform incredible feats of physical agility with fearlessness and determination, we are awestruck. When we see teenagers doing similar things, we label them as “trouble,” “yobs,” and yet they are nothing less than wildly confident and breathtakingly courageous. At what point, then, do we change our perception of their achievements and see that these young people have a wealth of unrecognised and untapped potential and start to channel that energy, passion and enthusiasm into a constructive and productive future?
Our aim is to begin to change that perception. The Omnia Foundation provides an environment in which our young learners can become themselves. We help them build that foundation for their future. Our unique approach to supporting self-development enables the young people to be heard, to exercise choice and in so doing to gain the confidence and self-assurance they need to become good people, able to make a valuable contribution to the community.
