Wrong Look Wrong Time Wrong Place
Knife Crime Awareness Workshops
Target Audience: Young people aged 11-18 in School or youth group settings.
Length : 2 x 2.5 hrs
Knife crime workshops, Wrong Look, Wrong Time, Wrong Place educate and raise awareness to about the risk and impacts associated with knife crime.
The workshops are delivered over two sessions and are based around the real events leading to the murder of Azaan Kaleem, back in May 2018.
Yorkshire Mentoring are the only training provider with permission from Channel 4 & The Garden TV production company who provided the rights to use footage from ‘24 Hours in Police Custody’ to use as an integral part of the workshop training.
The workshops have learning outcomes, with activities and discussions exploring empathy and risk, dispelling myths, the law and social media. Throughout the workshops we explore with young people the impact of knife crime and serious violence on the individuals & communities who are increasingly affected by serious violence.
Each young person is provided with a workbook to keep and take home, which we hope builds on further discussion within the home.
Each of our workshops can be tailored to work within youth groups & school settings.
