StreetwYze is an eight-week project delivered to Primary 7’s within their school.
For one hour each week, the groups will explore the dangers and consequences of being involved in gang violence & antisocial behaviour.
The eight-week programme aims to improve the health and wellbeing and safety of young people and the wider community by highlighting the dangers and consequences of gang violence, knife crime, alcohol abuse and anti-social behaviour.
The classes will be encouraged to express their experiences through artwork, creative writing and poems.
Throughout the project, young people will gain a Dynamic Youth Award.
StreetwYze allows FARE to engage with young people who are in the transition from Primary to Secondary where they are most vulnerable from peer-pressure into joining gangs. We are also able to build relationships with young people and signpost them into other services if need be.
Here is some of the young peoples creative art work.
