The Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Manchester are one of six counties across the country to be have been chosen to deliver the Essex Boys & Girls Clubs’ Respect programme.
Thanks to funding from the Youth Endowment Fund, Essex Boys & Girls Clubs have now been able to roll out the programme that they have been delivering successfully in schools for over 20-years, across England and Wales.
Respect works with year 9 pupils who are struggling to engage with school and education and, through a range of life skills workshops, experiential learning opportunities and a week-long residential, seeks to get them back on track.
Respect will be running until May 2021 and in that time four cohorts of 45 young people will take part.
Andy Hamill said that he was really pleased to have the opportunity to work with Z-arts.
The first cohort will be from schools in Oldham and will take place in the first part of 2020. This will soon be followed by a cohort from the Manchester area.
Eric Noi has been appointed to deliver Respect and we will keep you up to date on a regular basis as to let you know how things are going.
If you want to know more or if you know of schools and young people that you work with and who might benefit from this exciting programme, please get in touch.
