Jamie McDonnell has had a busy few days working with over 80 students across Doncaster as part of the National Citizenship Programme.
The teenagers undertook a boxing skills session followed by a question and answer forum. Students got to ask Jamie about what it’s really like to be a boxer.
Jamie was also able to talk to them about careers and development opportunities that they perhaps wouldn’t have learnt about in school or college.
The National Citizenship Programme is a 4 week programme that enables young people (15-17 year olds) to challenge themselves with outdoor activities, giving them new skills to use in the future. The programme concludes with each student completing 30 hours volunteering in the local community through a social action project.
