“Our goal is to tackle the onset of youth violence and criminal exploitation, head-on, by creating a nationally recognised educational theatre production and an associated workshop and curriculum experience, designed specifically to reach ALL young people aged 12 – 14, in England.
‘Innit’ is a significant, impactful cultural and diversionary activity; specifically written for an audience that is most at-risk of exclusion and that educationalists and theatres are continually struggling to engage.” – Micky Dacks, CEO
WE WANT TO:
- Influence young people to participate in society and lead pro-social lives
- Discourage young people from committing crime, especially knife-related crimes
- Encourage young people to engage in their Secondary, Higher and Further education
- Advance young people towards achieving long-term goals
OUR VISION OF SUCCESS:
I4YPC believes that through campaigning, training and education and by reaching our target audiences of young people through theatres and youth and educational settings nationwide, we can break the negative cycle of exclusion – which will enable those affected to feel a sense of self-worth and be dissuaded from entering into the Criminal Justice System.
