Discover and support community projects helping to transform Hackney's public spaces!
the youth culture seems to be falling apart at the moment, young people especially vulnerable kids don't feel like they fit in with the society & there doesn't seems to be a voice for young people so at the moment there's a bit of carnage. on the streets it seems to be feuds and it seems to be an epidemic of violence and its getting worse. i've had conversations and discussions on what is happening, what can we do, what opportunities can we create for young people? the answer is SPORTS. get them involved in SPORTS, they love SPORTS, be it football, basket ball, boxing, tennis, volley ball, athletic etc.. young people are easily swayed, because of lack of positive role models, mentorship & support these feeds them into being led down the wrong path. We know sport & coaching can be a powerful tool for development, giving them the chance to experience structure, goal-setting, teamwork, a sense of achievement & mutual respect. get them in position where they can see the future.
