SCHOOLS PROJECT NEWS
In September 2018, Outside Chance launched its Year 6 primary school 'transition' module and Year 7+ anti crime, anti gang secondary school module in West London venues for its 15th year. In the school year ending in July 2019, we delivered workshops across West London boroughs, seeing just under 10,000 young people, an increase of 24% on our 2017-2018 total outputs and 62% over our annual 6,000 attendees projected target.
'It's YOUR Choice!' is a high impact, visual, interactive, early intervention programme which takes Year 6 'transition' primary and secondary school pupils and young people through a journey from peer pressure, bullying, antisocial behaviour, gangs and petty crime into actual prison conditions, clothing and the often harsh regime of a young offender unit. The impact of committing a crime, of a criminal record and a prison sentence on a young person's life are all covered in considerable detail. The programme involves student interaction in a number of 'mock' crime scenes.
By the close of the 2018-2019 school year in July 2019, our workshops had been viewed by 175,000+ students and young people in primary and secondary schools and youth groups across Greater London.
Outside of our operational boroughs of Brent, Ealing, Hammersmith and Fulham, Hillingdon, Hounslow, Slough and Spelthorne, fees for our workshops are applied on the basis of £245 each in venues west of a north/south line from Enfield to Croydon and £295 each in venues east of a north/south line from Enfield to Croydon. The additional costs reflect the extra staff and travel costs involved in reaching East London destinations. Additional workshops delivered in the same venue and on the same day cost an extra £100 for the second workshop and an extra £80 for the third workshop. Please see 'Our Operational Area And Fees' page for more details.
