Charity information: ASR Community
Summer is the longest time that young people will be disengaged from school or other educational studies. This is the period where young people become the most at risk.
Within our catchment there are more than 1200 young people attending the school, these are the young people who will be most at risk.
We will be creating this project to combat issues that young people could get involved in if no diversionary project was available, like, Drug Abuse, Alcohol Abuse,
and Anti Social Behavior
Through this project we hope to create a culture where young people take social responsibility and develop a sense of belonging. Through young people becoming positive role models, we believe this will encourage them to take control of the environment around them. This in turn will help them create a more positive image of their community.
We sit with young people and go through the programme and allow them to be part of the planning process so that young people can take ownership.
To engage as many young people within the local community.

The Biscot and Dallow wards of Luton are nationally recognised as being from amongst the most disadvantaged and deprived areas of England. Young people growing up in this area have a higher risk of being involved in crime, have lower educational attainment and aspirations. The continuous negative media coverage associating the town with extremism whether it be religious or far right has not helped the self esteem and confidence of young people.
young people aged 8-19 and Volunteers aged 16 +
We are the most succeful youth organisation in Luton. Last year our Summer School became the largest project in Luton with over 375 registrations and over 70 Volunteers. We have won various local awards for the project.
