I Can & I Am continues to go from strength to strength with our founder James Shone delivering increasing numbers of inspiring presntations to both young pupils and adults to great acclaim. His first book entitled 'After Lights Out'
is a compilation of 100 blogs written over the last few years. We'd be delighted to send out copies and ask for a suggested voluntary donation of £15 plus p&p which can be made via this site.
As a charity, we are passionate about enabling individuals to live a fulfilling life, fuelled by self-belief. We offer tools and inspiration to move forward with a sense of purpose, primarily ‘I can achieve and I am of value’. Time on board our double decker bus provides a combination of hands on cooking (of pizza or bread) with workshops that further embed our messages. We all have a balloon of self-belief inside us; when it’s full, life tends to be good, we bounce back from setbacks, we feel we have purpose. When it’s deflated, life becomes a struggle. Our mission is to enable those we work with to recognise their own balloon, and give them the tools to keep it inflated. The strength of this message is that it’s simple. Take a look at this 2 minute clip of the bus in action.
To enable us to continue this great work, we need to raise funds to cover the running costs of the bus. As a charity, we’ve always provided our time within state schools free of charge
with significant discounts available to independent schools when budgets are limited.
We're extraordinarily lucky to have the invaluable support of both Howdens Joinery and Boodles. If you are part of an organisation who may be able to support our bus on an ongoing basis, please do get in touch."The ‘I Can and I Am’ team leave an indelible mark on a school community. They are inspirational. Pizzas hook the children in, but what follows is profound, life-enhancing and not often found in a school curriculum. This is real learning. This is real education.”
Titus Mills, Headmaster, Port Regis School"The bus gave us the luxury of time for pupils to bake bread and also to think about their wellbeing in a really engaging space, so different from their normal day. This package, together with James's talk, was perfect. I've had a line of parents, particularly from the most vulnerable and challenging pupils, saying thank you!"
