Girls Chance to Shine Street
The Chance to Shine Street Girls project is for participants aged 8 to 14 and aims to increase aspiration, promote mutual respect, and enhance relationships with others, including schools and the wider community.
Chance to Shine Street aims to use cricket to:
– Positively engage pupils within marginalised schools
– Provide diversionary activity that engages young people in communities affected by youth crime and anti-social behaviour
– Break down barriers between diverse communities which have previously struggled to integrate, contributing to community cohesion
– Work towards positive outcomes for young people: participating leading to training, volunteering or securing employment.
Chance to Shine Street Girls Sessions take place bi-weekly on Saturday’s 10.30am-12:00pm at Beauchamp College in Oadby. For more information, please contact Tom Leonard on 07495 092718 or 0116 244 2198 or Amna Rafiq (details in the flyer below)
Current future dates are: 22nd October, 5th & 19th November, 3rd & 17th December
