Escape youth project in Mitcham
Youths show there is an alternative to gangs

By Evadney Campbell, Croydon Reporter

Dozens of young people braved the weather to perform in Mitcham town centre to mark the end of their summer project.

Escape Youth Project is the brain child of former Croydon students Andre Hackett and Richard Abiona. In its second year, the scheme which operates over the summer holidays worked with young people aged 11 to 15 from around the Mitcham area.

This year saw around 70 young people taking part in a series of music, dance and drama workshops. The aims of the project according to its organisers are to provide an alternative to gang culture and “help young people take advantage of the opportunities they have here”.

The teenagers also helped raised money for the Wood Worlds Missions particularly supporting a charity for other young people in Ghana.Escape youth project in Mitcham
