ARU is developing its civic mission and engaging with the local community to actively address societal challenges.
Our new civic initiative, ARU in the Community: A Trusted Adult Scheme (TAS), brings together a team of youth support workers, the network of child protection practitioners, academics and trained adults/students to work together to advance our understanding of the needs of the children and young people.
The main aim of TAS is to support children and young people to identify the benefits of ARU civic engagement that can improve ARU civic missions and responsibilities it has with its community.
Children and young people aged between 14-18 from Cambridgeshire are invited to participate in our new project. Each day will provide refreshments, an opportunity to enjoy the PlayStation 5 and Virtual Reality Headset, music recording studio workshops, and a chance to engage with street art (with workshops run by graffiti artist William "Kilo" Pengelly). You'll also have access to our campus gym, and wi-fi.
Our sessions are very informal and friendly and are mainly led by our students. We really hope to see you on campus during the summer months.
Please be advised that places are limited and make sure that you provide the details of one of your key workers (name and email address).
TAS launched on 20 July 2023. The project ran for six weeks between July and August 2023. Two additional dates have been added for Autumn half term 2023:
This project is a collaboration between ARU and Cambridgeshire County Council.
