Recent Activities

There is always something going on at Baca whether that is English teaching, workshops, trips, award ceremonies to celebrate young people achievements and so on.  We consistently want young people to experience different opportunities, develop and cultivate a proactive approach to learning and most importantly, have fun whilst doing it!

Each activity we do enables the team to build trust with the young people helping us work with them in the development of their futures through life skill training.  We love to celebrate their achievements, tell them how proud we are of them and let them explore fully who they are.

Cooking together and sharing food help the young people learn about UK food and how to work and live together.  A group of our boys had a great time at one of the houses learning to cook a new dish.  They also enjoyed spending time together over the meal and learning more about each other.

We went on a day trip to London.  It was a great day walking around and seeing all of the sights.  Many of the young people had never been to London before and were excited to see and learn more about the big city.  We visited Buckingham Palace, Parliment and Trafalgar Square and then were able to go in the London Eye to see the sky line.

Last night we had the privilege of attending Regents College awards to support one of our former young people receive a 'Student of the Year Award'. This young person moved out from our support to their own flat in January this year. We continue to cheer him on and are proud of the success he is having.

Categories: Sports Achievements

As part of Refugee week, Leicester City Council, in partnership with the Red Cross, host a football tournament for refugees and asylum seekers in the area. Baca has entered a team for the past 3/4 years but have found it really difficult as they are playing against men significantly older than them. This year however they did incredibly well and reached the semi final. They were also awarded the fair play award, with the organisers saying how impressed they were with the team work and positive attitude of all the boys. We are so proud of them!
