Values Education for Life

Welcome to Values Education for Life

Working together to improve the quality of life through education and training

The Safe School

VEFL is developing a new school in North Warwickshire to support disadvantaged young people who have not succeeded in main stream education.

We believe that all young people should have the opportunity to reflect on their personal values, to engage in group discussion about these and then to discuss and consider whether their values reflect what they sincerely believe.

 

Values Education for Life offers these opportunities to young people and encourages them to reflect on and discuss positive values and principles that will enable them to live a constructive and spiritually satisfying life. We then engage them in community activity that will allow them to test their principles against the reality of the world that they live in.

We encourage the young people we work with not only to reflect on their own values and the values of others, but to also engage in practical work that provides opportunities for them to help others in their communities and develop and understand the importance of being a thoughtful and principled member of their community.

 

For example, a group of young people volunteer to give up part of their weekends and holidays in order to visit and work with residents of a local old peoples' home.
