For 36 years, Leap has worked with young people who are NEET or vulnerable to joining gangs, engaging in criminal behaviour, being excluded from education or at risk of being displaced from the home. Through interactive, engaging role play, we empower young people to navigate inevitable conflict.
Conflict is inevitable in all facets of life from relationships with parents, siblings and friends, teachers, employers, colleagues, and strangers. The way we manage conflict is key to the outcome.
Leap training engages young people to gain the self-awareness, tools and reflection to understand how to better navigate conflict day to day and become role models and leaders amongst their peers and in their communities. Our work contributes to reductions in antisocial behaviour, crime and gang activity. It prevents breakdowns in relationships, keeping more young people in the home and in school, with improved attendance and raised attainment levels changing their trajectory for the better.
