Type of Organisation: NGO

Project description

An intensive youth leadership programme that reduces vulnerability and increase resilience to radicalisation, delivered over several months to groups of between 12 and 17 young people aged 14-19.

Two intensive three-day residentials form the core of delivery, accompanied by introductory and follow-up days delivered in referring institutions, usually schools.

Course content includes interaction with speakers, including experts, formers and survivors; interrogation of long and short-form multimedia; simulations and role-play; dialogue on differing views and grievances; exploration of (social) media narratives.

Delivery is highly participatory, using tried-and-tested non-formal learning techniques to: cultivate critical thinking skills, including self- and other-awareness; build capability to identify and manage conflicts, including those related to violent extremism; increase awareness of extremism and how to think critically about narratives that condone it.

Graduates enter a network of young leaders, where they can pursue their own, personalised, peaceful strategies for effecting change.
