Sadly Knife Crime and Youth Violence has become a more and more frequent in our communities. Youth Centre's are closing or not providing the support needed to mentor our Children to reach their full potential despite any difficulties they are facing. As trusted and experienced members of the community we are trying to meet the needs of these vulnerable Youth.
Serious Youth Violence and gang related activity is a local and London wide priority concern. GO PRO will combat serious youth violence against a backdrop of increased concerns about cross border gang activities over the last year. Senior officers from the Council and Police have been working closely with counterparts from Brent, Hammersmith and Fulham and Westminster to align and develop activities to counter serious youth violence and gang activities across the four boroughs. GO PRO Boxing program forms part of our local response to tackling some these issues and aims to engage young people who have been identified as involved in or at high risk of involvement in criminality. This includes serious youth violence, gang related activity and anti social behaviour together with other presenting risk factors including: young people at risk of misusing substances, those with a learning difficulty and/or disability, young people not in Education, Employment or Training (NEET) and finally young people at risk of becoming NEET (persistent absentees, excluded, underachieving).
Money raised will be spent on young people taking part in Boxing training with qualified coach's and Qualified youth workers, then immediately after workshops to finish of the session with food and refreshments to enable a relaxed family environment of breaking break together, encouraging talks given around the benefits of continuing education and gaining training and employment. Rewarding regular attendee's with Trips to give a positive experience attached to this project. Trip include Go karting / Indoor Surfing & Speed boat trip on the Thames.
