Youth crime represents a damaging cost to society: not just to the young people themselves, with lives blighted for their future prospects, but also to communities and the economy as a whole.
Research suggests both sport and arts can help turn problem youths' lives around and promote a pathway to a brighter future for youngsters 'at risk' of criminal behaviour.
This workshop examines the causes of youth delinquency, the ways sport can help, and how problematic it can be to evaluate whether sport interventions actually work.
Our Virtual Masterclasses
We're delivering our Masterclasses virtually at the moment, to continue allowing you access to our amazing sessions delivered by expert academics. Throughout the sessions we will aim to meet individual needs, allow space for reflection and include time for conversations to share experiences and knowledge within the 'virtual' room.
Our virtual Masterclasses are approximately an hour long, but may run longer if we have a lot of questions.
If you are a teacher or tutor and would like for your whole class to get involved, drop us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org and we'll see how we can help you. Bespoke events may be possible for schools and colleges, at times that suit you, dependent on academic availability.
Attendees at these masterclasses will receive a reduced offer of up to 16 points for future applications to related University of Cumbria courses. Click below for full Terms and Conditions.
