RefugeeYouth currently runs activities through our group APOW- Amazing People of the World.
APOW is a creative social community in the heart of Croydon. We run weekly sessions in which young people from refugee backgrounds can come together to build a sense of belonging and
develop new friendships. The activities are always creative- such as drama, film, and visual arts workshops- to enable young people to explore issues that affect them as well as finding solutions to the challenges they face.
Our mission is to combat the vulnerability and isolation of young refugees through creativity, building networks and tools of self-empowerment and bringing communities of people together.
RefugeeYouth aims to:
- To create communities of young people and a wide range of opportunities for young refugees to find friendship and belonging across culture, age and gender, and to develop supportive networks
- To promote leadership amongst young people in refugee communities so that they may go on to be advocates and leaders amongst their younger peers.
- To advocate for change for young refugees amongst policy-makers and professionals and to promote change for young refugees in the wider environment.
