Dreamworx - Lowestoft

Dreamworx is an active organisation that provides a drop in centre service for all people between the ages of 10 - 13 years, giving them the option and opportunity to get involved with what is happening within their community. Providing a voice for young people, they gain experience from volunteering at community events to learn new skills varying from gardening to being part of a committee group. This service will give young people the chance to develop social skills in a safe setting and gain the confidence and ability to take part in their communities.

We run 3 Drop In's a week they are as follows;

Tuesday evening (Year 5 & 6) - Gunton Baptist Church, Montgomery Avenue, at 6.30pm - 8.00pm.

Notes

It is a street based youth project aimed at 8-13 year olds in North Lowestoft from families suffering from social and economic deprivation/exclusion, under-achievers (often excluded from school or have ASBOs), have learning/behavioral problems, are members of street gangs / street families, who do not fit into existing structured provision, who find themselves alienated from their local community or peers, or are at risk of offending. The project is non-stigmatising aiming at the young people as individuals and based on need rather than ethnic origin or other labels. This inclusive perspective will be monitored through the life of the project. The detached workers will engage with young people on the streets, where the young people are congregating. They will also be offered to local Middle Schools for curricular and non-curricular activities. The Project will help young people their dreams and ambitions. Their volunteering activities will gain them tokens toward organised outings, special events, trips etc. We will seek sponsorship from local businesses for these activities. The young people will gain confidence, a sense of responsibility and social skills by being involved in the leading and delivery of the project. They will receive certificates of achievement through their involvement and through mentoring. Volunteers will be empowered so that the project continues after the initial three year period.
