Streets Of Growth
Streets of Growth are a frontline community engagement organisation, specialising in transforming the lives of disengaged disenfranchised young people through providing educational opportunities.
Our central aim is to develop practices that encourage, challenge and support young people aged between 14-21 to take ownership of generating and embracing opportunity, responsibility and accountability. We enable young people to rebuild their communities through a range of educational training and enterprise programmes, which enable our young people to get out of poverty and socially deprived environments. Rebuild their lives and contribute to re-building their communities.
We currently work intensively with up to 250 high-risk young people a year, intentionally seeking out, and are approached by young people who, for whatever reason, are struggling to make the positive progression between youth to adulthood and achieve socioeconomic independence. Many of these young people are; negatively street involved, in gangs, dropping in and out of school or college, struggling to access or hold down employment, or court and prison involved.
We provide less intensive services for up to 150 young people a year who are far more safe and stable in their personal, family, social, educational and economic development, and yet, still require lower level support for sustaining their progression.
We also work closely with families as part of intervention work with high risk young people and have co working partnerships with local Safer Neighbourhood Police Teams, local schools, LBTH Youth and Community Services, local business and social enterprise partners.
