Voyage relaunches it Horizons Programme at Hackney Community College

Voyage is launching its first ever-static delivery of its expanded (10 week) unique Horizons programme.

Horizons is designed specifically for black and minority young men and women between 14 and 18 years and is delivered by culturally aware tutors who understand the issues. Voyage tutors are mentors with a deep understanding the wider issues in the criminal justice system and are trained in the area of cognitive behavioural therapy.

Horizons is a dynamic yet highly structured group work programme which possess the unique ability to challenge and inspire whilst imparting broader knowledge about Policing and the legal system. The programme presents a comprehensive framework of learning materials drawing on relevant and up to date case studies, explored through role-play and a powerful array of archival film, music and topical discourse.

The open day session is designed to set out how and when the programme will operate from our new base at the Hackney Community College and what makes it powerful and unique. Voyage will also explain how it will manage the referral process, set out its monitoring, reporting procedures and its flexible delivery options for cohorts coming from different parts of London.

Voyage presents this event in line with a renewed spirit of transformation of the criminal justice system in anticipation of a more purposeful transition towards restoration whilst embracing education as opposed to simply locking up our young. ‘as the government prepare for the “biggest shake up to the custody system since Victorian times” (quote from David Cameron last week). We therefore present Horizons which is increasingly in demand as a viable and highly effective prevention and alternative to custody programme for the 21st century…’

Our information afternoon is open to various staff roles within the criminal justice system including Young Offending Service commissioning managers, case officers, HMPYOI staff, Pupil Referral teachers, managers and gangs matrix officers.

Kindly contact Voyage office should you want more information on 0207 613 8343

Very interesting statistics from USA

These are some amazing stats from the USA. Its clear that without an education in the US you are more than likely to end up in prison and with a criminal background you will struggle to stay employed. The message is to stay in school and increase your chances of success in life.

Vickram opened by discussing his views on race, leadership and power and related his rich and diverse experiences as a youth leader in a London school, the Fabian Society and now his position as Councillor in Hounslow. Vickram spoke passionatly about his influences, memorable moments and the importance of drawing on peer groups for support and guidance but also knowing when to step out alone.
