Callum’s Story: A Journey of Self-Discovery

Callum, a participant from XP embarked on a journey of self-discovery and passion exploration.  


Callum is a student at XP School. As part of his schoolwork, Callum had a work placement week ahead of him, but he wasn’t entirely sure about his career path and was uncertain about what he wanted to pursue. What he did know was his love for sports and the burning desire to dive into the sports industry.  

With determination and passion in his heart, Callum reached out directly to Active Fusion, where he connected with Kingsley – our incredible Community & Leadership Manager. Kingsley, being the guiding light that he is, helped Callum set up his work placement. This helped Callum take the first steps into working towards employability. In November 2022, Callum commenced his journey with Active Fusion. 

During his placement, Callum had the opportunity to work in several schools across Doncaster, where he got to meet and learn from our fantastic Active Fusion Education and Community Coaches. 

When Callum’s time with Active Fusion came to an end, he returned to XP with nothing but praises and high regard for our charity. Reflecting on his experience with us sparked a deep interest, leading him to explore the possibility of an apprenticeship through Active Fusion. Although this particular path didn’t pan out, Callum was not deterred. He had a backup plan in mind: he enrolled at Doncaster College to study Level 1 Sport – also tutored by Active Fusion. 

Today, we’re proud to share that Callum is not just pursuing his passion for sports but also actively participating in our Fusion Community Leaders program. His dedication and commitment to volunteering with Active Fusion had rewarded him with a great opportunity, and we’re excited to see him grow as a leader in the Doncaster community.  

Callum’s journey is a testament to the power of determination and the support of mentors like Kingsley. We can’t wait to see what the future holds for this remarkable young individual, and we hope to see more of Callum’s motivated self within Active Fusion!
