We want communities that create employment opportunities and promote shared prosperity.
A wide range of events and programming will ensure that the Heroes Centre caters for the whole community and it will deliver an inspirational learning environment 362 days per year.
Working in an innovative partnership with Glasgow Caledonian University (GCU), to utilise full time undergraduates as mentors/trainers, Helensburgh Heroes will deliver hours and hours of creative courses/workshops, providing life skills for every member of the local community.
All members of the community will express themselves freely and creatively, by learning a range of life skills in a non-threatening environment and there will be a unique ‘mentoring’ facility for people to broaden their skills and develop their ideas.
Importantly, the Heroes Centre will cross age barriers with younger people introducing and engaging with older people leading to an atmosphere of inclusion, value and respect.
Helensburgh, in common with many towns across Scotland, has been and still is home to many inspirational people who have made an impact on society on a global scale. The Centre will empower the community to raise its expectations – through the use of local role models- the ‘Heroes’.
The Charity believes that the contributions and experiences of role models can inspire current and future generations of Scots to do great things by placing technology, arts, education and innovation at the heart of its communities.
A full programme of activities will be announced in early 2018.
