We work with young people aged 13-25 to help them re-engage with  education, FIND employment OR move away from anti-social behaviour, gang involvement and exploitative relationships.

 Engage – Empower – Transform

We believe in the power of community so  we build communities of change around young peoples’ interests and needs.  We believe a healthy community draws people to itself, changes individuals and empowers them to impact their environment. Within these communities, positive relationships develop and barriers fall. 


 our Vision

We build a community of young people with the aim of engaging and empowering them in order to ignite change. We want to create a community in which young people have the confidence and self-belief to make positive changes and transform their lives.


The Journey

Our youth workers are committed to journeying with young people, many of whom are at-risk, marginalised or face barriers to  achieving success in life. 

The three stages of the journey may take years but we are about long-term commitment: 

  • Engagement: making meaningful contact with young people through activity and education-based programmes; 
  • Empowerment: challenging values and behaviour and equipping young people with the tools, resources and opportunities to make positive choices in their current situations;
  • Transformation: supporting young people to change the direction of their lives away from negative influences and raising aspirations, set goals for the future and support them into long-term transformation.

Method

  • We listen to young people so that they inform how we work;
  •  We offer projects that young people are enthusiastic about getting involved with
  • We constantly evaluate our work based on the outcomes for our young people
  • We work  holistically in 1:1 mentoring to set goals and overcome obstacles so that our young people have lifelong skills relevant to them
  • We develop small group sessions  that are flexible to the needs of our young people 
  • We welcome young people from the diverse communities within Harrow
  • We work collaboratively with other organisations to ensure that we build the best possible pathways for our young people
