Boyza Bus Outreach Provision

Supported By Ron & Louise Bowey

We aim to deliver our invaluable outreach programme of youth focused diversionary activities from our purpose build ‘Boyza Bus’. A diverse and fully inclusive activity program will be delivered over the next year in the areas of Howdon and Battle Hill. A wide range of activities and opportunities will be used to establish relationships with socially marginalised young people who often miss out on mainstream opportunities. Young people have the opportunity to talk to responsible adults about issues affecting their lives. We will enable them to explore and develop new skills in a safe, stimulating and non-judgemental environment. Thus improving their life chances, helping them to be active members of the community and play an important role in regenerating their neighbourhood The projects overall aim is to encourage young people to aim higher and achieve more - personally, socially and physically. Having a positive influence on individual participants by widening horizons and access to lifestyle, educational and employment opportunities within in a supportive and culturally familiar environment.

We aim to address important issues including anti-social behaviour, through a range of positive activities including healthy lifestyles, sports, arts, team building volunteering and social action. As a result young people will lead healthier more active lives and gain access to training, apprenticeships and employment opportunities. Through participating in a wide range of activities on offer it is hoped that benefits such as improved self-esteem, confidence and motivation will be developed in the young people we work with.
