Jack Dares Young people of Chichester to Dream

Jack the Lad, famous for his award-winning breakfast show and interviewing the likes of Ricky Gervais, Colin Firth and Danny de Vito who joined the award-winning team at the Love Local Jobs Foundation CIC has delivered his first Dare to Dream session.

Dare to Dream is the newest programme from Love Local Jobs Foundation (CIC) where local radio presenter of Heart Sussex FM for 15 years personality Jack “the lad” Hayes utilises his local reputation and infectious personality to deliver his story of resilience and overcoming adversity to help raise the career aspirations of school and college students across Sussex. This includes:

– School / college speaking tours

– Interactive workshops and Q&A sessions

– Community, economic and charitable events

Joining Ormiston Six Villages Academy just outside of Chichester in Eastergate, for an enrichment day titled The Girls and Boys Conference, Jack delivered two inspirational and motivational sessions. He spoke of his journey from council life estate to becoming the third longest serving radio host, dropping useful life anecdotes throughout. Jack shared stories from his childhood poverty and experiences from schools, to show the students that they can “dare to dream” and anything is possible if they set their minds to it. Jack spoke of the importance of humility, empathy, communication skills and grasping every opportunity possible.

Mr Anthony J Ender, who organised the school’s enrichment day said, “It was amazing to hear Jacks stories from growing up to celebrity interviews. He was fun engaging, and all the students enjoyed his talk. I feel he left an impression on our community and we would love to work with The Love Local Jobs Foundation CIC again”

Jack said “It was fantastic to get in-front of the students to share my story, offer some pointers and give them advice on how maybe changing their way of thinking to a more positive one as they move forward. It is an amazing thing to be asked to do. I thoroughly enjoyed my morning in Chichester and was made very welcome. I am truly loving the opportunity and can’t wait to meet more of Sussex’s young people”.

Dare to Dream has been made possible through the local generosity and philanthropy of local businesses. Rivervale, Golden Lion Group, Fireco and TSS are the first confirmed sponsors of Dare to Dream but there are still opportunities to support this initiative.
