Positive Role Models have teamed up with London Youth to offer a unique opportunity for young people to make a positive difference in their community.
The project is called YouthLeads. It will enable young people to gain practical experience of leadership and grow their confidence, networks and communication skills. YouthLeads will make a difference for these communities by creating positive activities for local young people and developing their skills.
The need for the project:
‘When they closed all the youth clubs, the young people felt something was taken away from them’.
- A lack of supported empowerment
- A downward spiral- staying at home, losing friends, and long term damage to self esteem and confidence
- Local gangs or criminal activity more exciting option impacting young people and the community as a whole
