Box Up Barking and Dagenham
Box Up is keen to expand its presence within London, and is actively working to set up new branches of the organisation in five new boroughs. By seeking out similar local figures with an intimite knowledge of the youth and gang dynamics in each borough, Box Up will create a wider reaching program that interconnects around the city, and tackles the growing epidemic of teenage murders.
Based in Dagenham, these community engagement sessions provide training, mentoring, discipline and motivation to young people age 13-20. The focus is on encouraging the young people to take positive action in their lives.
