Prince Harry was in Nottingham yesterday, February 1, to visit two Royal Foundation projects: Coach Core and Full Effect.
After visiting Nottingham in October 2016, Harry was back to see how Coach Core and Full Effect were doing in the three months since he last checked in on them.
Harry joined a music and sports session at Nottingham Academy where he met a number of students benefiting from the Full Effect program, and heard first-hand from staff about the positive impact it has on the local school communities.
Full Effect empowers young people to engage their peers and communities in the issues that matter most to them while developing key skills, aspirations, industry networks and employment opportunities through Early Intervention progras and building a wider support network for Young People.
Harry witnessed a kickboxing class and watched as children rapped during a music class.
Harry then traveled to Nottingham Council House where he attended a graduation ceremony for Coach Core apprentices.
The Coach Core apprenticeship scheme gives young people aged 16-24 the chance to become the next generation of inspirational coaches. Coach Core is a program run by the Royal Foundation of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Prince Harry.
Harry spoke to the graduates, but the royal website hasn’t put the transcript online as of time of posting. Below is a short video with some of his comments.
