Copenhagen Youth Project
Copenhagen Youth Project
CYP delivers 7-9 hours of sport, arts and skills-based sessions each week, including a 3 hour Monday night youth club session and three Football for Life sessions.
We are an established and innovative youth project, working with young people in the local community since 2001. Our Mission is to challenge young people of diverse backgrounds from the age of 7 through to 21, supporting their individual learning and personal development, to give them opportunities and provide them with choice.
Our Vision is to create leadership opportunities for young people, so that with their input, together we can provide the best quality of service. Through this programme the young people begin to understand and support each other, decreasing anti-social behaviour, peer conflict and violence. We are located in the North Kings Cross area of London, this is an area of both (long-term) high deprivation and affluence, with regeneration (now suddenly) at its core. The young people we work with, include those who are vulnerable, excluded or at risk of offending. 75% of the young people we work with are from BME backgrounds (year 2011). We carefully plan our activities to ensure that they are not simply diversionary, but act as a vehicle for focused work to progress young people, to help them develop skills, access learning and give them pathways to training and work opportunities so that they can start to explore their potential and benefit from the nearby Kings Cross Central developments and consequent renewal of the area.
Copenhagen Youth Project aims to:
- We aim to build on our existing partnerships with other local organisations to strengthen our provision and impact for young people and the wider community.
- Our aim is to challenge young people from diverse backgrounds from the age of 7 through to 19, supporting their individual learning and personal development, to give them opportunities and provide them with choice. We want to create leadership opportunities for young people, so that they will make a difference to the area, and together we can provide the most effective service. Through this approach the young people will begin to understand and support each other, decreasing anti-social behaviour, peer conflict and violence
