We’re absolutely delighted to say that Young Bristol is part of a national collaboration, receiving a grant from the Youth Endowment Fund.
The Respect Project led by Essex Boys and Girls Clubs, is working nationally with Boys and Girls Clubs of Greater Manchester; Boys and Girls Clubs of South Yorkshire; Boys’ and Girls Clubs of Wales; Lancashire Association of Boys and Girls Clubs, and Young Bristol, to prevent youth offending through early intervention.
The project is one of 22 ground-breaking interventions across England and Wales, helping to stop young people being drawn in to crime and violence.
The 10 week programme will work through local schools to engage with Year 9 students aged 13-14 years old, and will focus on building the young peoples’ life skills through an introduction to outdoor activities. The programme will continue with a week-long residential, followed by a Presentation Evening to celebrate participants completion of the programme. By the end of the programme, we will aim to have increased the young peoples’ ability to deal with life’s problems; overall becoming more resilient.
Young Bristol will run a series of 4 programmes over a 2 year period, with the project commencing later this year.
We will be sharing more information on this initiative on our website and social media channels soon. In the meantime, for further information please call 0117 929 2513.
