In February 2016, Spark Inside appointed The Social Investment Consultancy to evaluate the impact of Hero’s Journey™. The final report shows that across the three years, Spark Inside has made a clear, positive impact on the lives of over 350 young men in prison.
The report indicates that when young people in prison participated in the Hero’s Journey™ programme, they experienced positive changes in the following areas:
Decision-making and problem-solving skills
Empathy and emotional intelligence
Resilience and confidence
Spark Inside’s CEO Vicki Cardwell says:
“It’s so heartening to see statistically significant results like these. The data fills us with confidence that we are doing the right thing and strengthens the case for putting life coaching in all prisons. It’s incredible for the team to see the positive impact our life coaches are having, and we will continue to work hard to make change happen in these young men’s lives.”
