Our Beliefs

Going Forward Beliefs

The Welsh Rugby Union recognizes and appreciates the potential of Welsh 16-18 year olds. Most of society doesn't see, or refuses to believe the amount of power our young adults have in our lives and communities. We know that every single young adult in Wales has the potential to better their clubs, their communities, and themselves. The beliefs that the foundations of Going Forward stem from the Welsh Rugby Unions Core Values.

Courage- 1. Responsibility and Freedom

Growing up, especially during this age, can seem like the amount of responsibility you have is growing by the day, but the freedoms you have are limited. 'Going Forward' gives you the freedom you deserve and need in order to grow into the person you want to be.

Excellence- 2. Inspire Others, Inspire Yourself

Inspiration and motivation ranges from helping you get up in the morning, to studying to get the best possible grade you can. 'Going Forward' will hopefully inspire you to challenge yourself not only during the project, but after it as well. You will definitely surprise everyone with what you can accomplish, but most importantly, you might even surprise yourself.

Integrity & Humor- 3. Challenge Yourself Out of Your Comfort Zone

Completing 'Going Forward' by doing the bare minimum is extremely easy... but pointless. We want you to push yourself out of your comfort zone. Not comfortable speaking to new people? Go out and arrange new meetings to better your group's project. Worried your ideas will be rejected by your peers? Make your voice heard!

Family- 4. Your Club, Your Community, Your Project

In every community, there are people who are not happy with their situation. They will moan about everyone else, about the government, about taxes and anything else they can think of. If you want to change your community, then what's stopping you? Going Forward wants you to make the difference to your community the way we know you can!

Success- 5. Preparation Through Experience

Growing up is a terrifying, incredible, stressful, unbelievable adventure and being aged 16-18 now is harder than ever. It seems that the whole word is asking what you are going to do with the rest of your life and how you're going to get there. You may not have all the answers and we don't expect you to, we just know that the more experience you have working in real world situations, the better equipped you'll be to face your future.
