It's time to get excited as the Humber Violence Prevention Partnership is gearing up to host its Scunthorpe Hope Hack on Wednesday 21st of February at the Baths Hall!
This event will provide a unique opportunity for the young people of North East Lincolnshire to inform leading policy makers on key issues that will help them to make their community feel fairer and safer.
This involves young people coming up with solutions to issues, rather than looking at the symptoms and causes.
The Hope Hacks have been designed by the Hope Collective, an organisation formed to support the campaign for Damilola Taylor, a 10-year-old boy who wrote of his hope to change the world, shortly before his untimely death in 2000.
The Hope Collective aim to establish real change that enables the UK’s most vulnerable communities to be free from poverty, violence and discrimination.
We’re encouraging schools, colleges and youth groups to bring up to 15 young people (Year 10 to Year 13) to this packed full-day event; we’re keen to hear from a diverse range of young people and in return can offer goodie bags, lunch, entertainment and the chance to make a positive difference in your local area!
Our previous events were a hit with both the young people and the educational professionals who joined them. We're excited to keep that momentum going in Scunthorpe!
