“Before Tempo I was quite set in my ways. Because it has been so practical it has helped me look outside the box, do things I wouldn’t have previously done … (it) made me look differently and think about how we can do things better and not just be content with things as they are … it has made me a better leader.” Dave (Youth worker, Ballysally)
“Having to work on a clear vision for youth outreach in Donabate helped me to see the big picture and put plans in place to develop leaders who have carried after I have gone.
Before I was working day to day. Tempo gave me the opportunity to ask questions and clarify what we were doing. It enabled me to plan and put in place clear steps as to how we could build community and enable our teenagers to discover Jesus.” Andy (Youth work intern, Donabate)
“I began to dream again and let God give me a new vision for the city.” Liesel (Dublin)
“Tempo has given me the confidence to try more things, and actively pursue a vision for change rather than just accepting things the way they are. It provided me with the tools and know how to analyse my role and our group, set a specific vision and the strategies needed to push us forward” Keith (teacher, Belfast)
