#WeBelieve - I first came across Kick Off @3 on Radio Verulam & have been very impressed with their drive & passion to bring together young people with sport, music & the arts. As a mother of a teenage son I really appreciate what this initiative is trying to achieve so I am helping them as a volunteer & introducing young musicians to the initiative & helping raising funds to support local & national initiatives & charities in St Albans.
Here's the background - A collaborative initiative set up by passionate men who wish to engage young people, using sport, music and other imaginative ideas to spread awareness.
KickOff@3 was created by Michael Wallace and Ashley Levien. Michael Wallace is a serving Police Officer who works in Community and Youth Engagement and is passionate about supporting youth and community initiatives outside work too.
He understands how important connections and relationships are with vulnerable young people, sports can provide stability they might not get elsewhere.
Ashley Levien runs Suberbos Community which is a social inclusion organisation that delivers free initiatives in the London Borough of Barnet. Ashley also volunteers in the community mentoring youths and contributing to charity work. Ashley has dedicated his professional career, and much of his time outside to support young people in getting involved in activities which they see the benefit of for the rest of their lives.
In 2017 Michael and Ashley devised a plan to establish firm, long lasting relationships between young people and their local police force as a youth diversion strategy and named it KickOff@3.
The project engages with young people through the medium of sports and music and raises awareness and funds for a range of charities that promote health and well-being in young people. For more information go to Kick Off @3
The next step for Kick Off @3 is to set up as a charity & apply for grant funding locally & nationally to continue to grow & build & help as many young people as we can. We have come so far with the help of so many people but we need to raise some money for core costs like admin, flyers, website & to build the next phase of our journey.
If you #believe as I do, then please help by donating, sharing & telling your friends & lets all connect to bring a better future for all the kids out there who may be losing their way.
All funds donated will go directly to Kick Off @3 & this crowdfunding initiative is fully endorsed.
