awards to drama group participants

There are many risk factors involved in youth crime. It can become a serious temptation if there are economic problems or neglect at home. Dropping out from school is another danger sign and when young people have low self esteem, peer pressure to misbehave can be at its greatest. We co-operate with the Police Superintendent's Discretionary Scheme and involve parents and members of the community in a rehabilitation process that helps young offenders turn over a new leaf.

For example, the Federation's Youth Support Scheme runs a reintegration programme sponsored by the Citigroup Success Fund. It gives participants the self confidence to express how they feel and build communication skills through creative drama. The new skills can be useful in many ways. These young people did voluntary work with senior citizens, performing on stage to the delight of all involved. Feature Story this week has an interview with two 13-year olds who took part. You will see how dramatically their attitude to life has changed.

See this week's Core service highlight for more about our services for youth at risk.
