Jamie on the right track thanks to YOLO

As pupils across the country return to school, Jamie has really benefitted from the Foundation of Light’s YOLO intervention scheme.

Instead of mixing with the wrong crowd and getting involved in anti-social behaviour, he joined the YOLO sessions as a way to engage in positive activities.

The project, in partnership with Northumbria Police and Crime Commissioner, helps the Foundation support youngsters who are at risk of slipping into a life of crime.

Throughout the summer, Jamie has participated in various activities, including online workshops and bike rides.

“They’ve done so much to help me,” Jamie explained. “Simple things that I struggled with before, I can now focus on.

“They got me back on track and showed me better ways to spend my time,” he continued.

“Taking part in the activities has made me see a change in my behaviour that I didn’t expect. I’m much calmer than I used to be and feel a lot more focused.”

Project coordinator Dave Jeffries is also pleased with the impact the YOLO programme is having on young people:

“It’s all about engaging kids and steering them on the right direction.

“With school starting back up it’s crucial to get them to focus on what is important and encourage them away from negative peer groups.

“The joint approach, between the Foundation and Northumbria Police, enables us to support the most vulnerable, deter them away from criminality, and improve lives to prevent crime.”
