Emotional Resilience for gangs from The Young Foundation on Vimeo.

The Young Foundation was commissioned by Harrow Metropolitan Police to develop and pilot an emotional resilience programme targeting 14 -19 year olds who are offending or at risk of offending.

Building on our successful training and delivery of the UK Resiliency Project in 24 secondary schools across three local authorities – Manchester, Hertfordshire, South Tyneside – we have developed a programme specifically for working with ‘gangs’. This will be delivered by a range of professionals working with young people and we have developed new materials with Dr Ilona Boniwell, one of Europe’s leading positive psychologists.

This trailer outlines some of the activities the young people participated in as part of their training. All music was produced by the young people.
