Junior energy champions

Here at Relish we have Junior Energy Champions and it’s great fun looking at different aspects of energy with them, particularly at our community house.

Find out what our Junior Energy Champions have been up to and also find out how you can get involved too!

 

What is a Junior Energy Champion?

Our Junior Energy Champion programme creates awareness of how energy is used at home, at school and everywhere else in our lives. We all know we need to waste less so we find fun ways with the children to see what, where and how.

Worthing Homes Energy Champions save themselves, their friends and their neighbours money. They offer step by step help on where to look to cut your bills down. They look at simple things such as working out bills and comparing tariffs (or finding the right people who can do it for you).

How to become a Champion

We encourage all children to contact the community house if they would like to be involved in our Junior Energy Champion Programme. We meet every few months to run some activities after school or during the school holidays. We have done activities like energy treasure hunts, quizzes and energy monitoring, all to learn what uses energy and how we can preserve it.

If you like the sound of having something to put on your CV, being a hero or heroine amongst your friends, or are just interested to find out more… Contact Poppy or mention it to any member of the Worthing Homes team who can take your details and we can provide information on our fun and free training programme.

Stories from the Champions

Junior Energy Champion James has logged the energy usage of the community house

Amy learnt that leaving the laptop plugged in even when not being used costs money. Then Christine recognised that this happened at home too and has now helped her family to save money on bills.

Tom came to the treasure hunt and remembered that filling the kettle without looking at the measurement or measuring in cups often meant too much water was boiled which wasted energy. He then mentioned it in the school cookery class and the teacher thought it was such a good observation that they changed the kettle to one with a measurement.
