The Chance to Shine Street Youth project is for participants aged 8 to 15 and aims to increase aspiration, promote mutual respect, and enhance relationships with others, including schools, police and the wider community.
Please take a moment to view our Chance to Shine Street Youth project video which provides further information about the project and a taste of the activity on offer:
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.
Tuesdays 4:30 – 7:30pm at Cossington Street Sports Centre
Wednesdays 4.30 – 6.00pm at New College
