  • Need


    We specialize in working with 'at risk' young people who often experience the negative consequences of living in deprived areas where poverty and crime are high. These adverse circumstances can bring difficult experiences whereby some young people become disempowered with low attainment levels, lack of opportunities and negative peer groups.


    The program is designed to be inclusive and empower young people to develop their self value and self worth. The activities will enable young people to feel a new sense of pride, hope for the future, increase their self believe, to build confidence and explore a new experience that will expand their horizons and propel them forward facilitating change & growth. Helping young people to develop their self identity and believe in their abilities to establish goals for their future.

  • Aims

    Aim 1

    To help 28 young people develop build confidence, self worth and self esteem


    » 1 Polo Experience Day including training and horse therapy.
    » 1 Motocross experience with mechanics training, and a careers talk
    » Outdoor residential experience
    » Ongoing counselling and mentoring for 6 months

    The young people will report feeling more confident and experience achieving more with their potential.

    Aim 2

    28 youths to develop transferable skills, a new sense of identity & purpose


    » Jacobs Ladder
    » Orienteering
    » Climbing Tower
    » Pioneering Challenge

    Young people will be empowered to set positive goals and start taking steps towards them. Young people will verbalise they feel an improved sense of purpose and identity.

  • Impact


    In the long term SCY would like to facilitate these young people to achieve more with their potential. To become Rising Stars! This will be evident through their decisions, social commitment and their personal goal achievements. Holistically this will positively impact the cycles of deprivation in the communities where they reside impacting social cohesion.


    Ensuring that we have the best staff, experienced and qualified to deliver, form, storm and norm the group to organically facilitate the growth and change of the young people.


    We can send the donors pictures of the activities and we will issue a quarterly newsletter
