Recently we had a young person who lost his life to gang violence, this has been the motivation for this project. We conducted a survey, we found that 136 young people (YP) did not believe there were enough youth clubs in the area (>90%). 85 YP stated that they felt unsafe during the day (>55%). 109 YP felt unsafe during the night (>75%). Key issues faced: gangs (67%), knife crime (70%), depression/mental health (32%), lack of opportunities (63), unaware of opportunities available to them (61%). First in a series of projects with young people at the helm of social action and change, is a project to redevelop and reorganise the youth centre to fit their needs. Creating a space that will be used to alleviate issues young people face, and instil confidence. Young people will be taught the fundamentals of project management from risk mitigation and budgeting to resolving issues and logistical challenges which are inherent in the charity sector in an engaging and positive manner. By empowering our young people and creating a safe space they have ownership over we hope to develop skills that are useful for employability and training. By YP for YP, ensuring nothing gets lost in translation. We hope to help YP become more employable, provide more knowledge of available support, providing a platform for them to influence change. Whilst also equipping them with a host of transferable skills enabling access to more opportunities and removing them from perpetuating cycles.
