City Youth
Say No to Anti-social Behaviour

Our project is aimed at reaching young people in the 16-25 age group helping them to overcome cyber bullying, knife crime and other harmful practices affecting youth in today's society.

We are doing this through providing exciting opportunities for spiritual transformation including discussion groups, studying the Word of God and its powerful message as well as encouraging them to create a piece of drama and music around the issues relevant to their daily lives.

The young people we work with include those from asylum seeker and refugee backgrounds and those from vulnerable and disadvantaged families living in poverty and facing hardship with little or no spiritual direction. Many have no particular belief or faith and some are from a Christian background but do not attend a church regularly or practice their faith.

From our work, we are aware that these young people are easy targets for gang recruitment and often find themselves victims of cyber or face to face bullying and some have told us that they are often forced to engage in anti-social behaviour as they see it as ‘cool’ to do so and feel part of their peer group rather than face exclusion and isolation.

The problem affects both male and female with girls being victims of poor self-image and face cyber bullying around their appearance which has a detrimental impact on their esteem and can often sadly result in eating disorders such as bulimia and anorexia. Boys are at risk of engaging in acts of vandalism or knife crime. 


Alcohol and drug taking can often be an easy escape for these young people and they can become easy targets for sexual predators as well as drug dealers.

We are actively engaged in helping to equip them with the knowledge and confidence to say 'NO' to pressures they face on a daily basis through this project.

PROGRESS SO FAR (June 2019) - Young people have met together to begin planning activities together including music sessions. They are busy organising a youth outreach on Plymouth Hoe on 22-23 June 2019 in which they will perform live music and a piece of drama with live testimonies from some of those taking part who have been involved in drugs/alcohol in the past.

On 3 August, another outreach will take place in Central Park, Plymouth, a large public open space during which young people will again perform live music and give powerful testimonies through drama and spoken word
