The Jarrett Foundation is proud to be in Partnership with BEATS By Dre. Beats are pioneering a remarkable pilot for black youth in the UK, whereby they are providing opportunity, access and representation for this community.
The Jarrett Foundation feel very proud and honoured to have been selected to be part of this pilot, and to be connected with a company of this calibre.
The Jarrett Foundation is running a FREE workshop, sponsored by Tesco, in Association with the Metropolitan Police for Schools and PRUs.
Young people are becoming more and more desensitised to crime and taking a life seems to come easily. This 40 min workshop (allowing for 1 hour with questions) is designed to make them think about the decisions they make. Every decision has a consequence. Carrying a knife will have lasting, devastating effects on BOTH FAMILIES, the victim’s family and the perpetrator’s family FOREVER.
Tesco is active in the communities they serve, and they wanted to be pro-active in reducing the knife crime in London. So Tesco have sponsored a London wide school tour courtesy of Groundwork.
In the UK we help youth, particularly black youth who are most vulnerable, those who are involved in knife crime and street crime, violence and antisocial behaviour.
We have also seen a huge increase in the number of youth who are isolated, suffering with mental health issues like depression, as a direct result of COVID-19, and as a consequence are self harming and even suicidal.
We provide tailored mentoring around activities that they will enjoy, to help them to open up and talk, whilst developing new skills and confidence to move on and aspire. Read more...
