By providing a positive environment, the young people will be able to come in the evenings, create their own music, work on lyrics and express their throughs and feelings through their raps. Less young people will be using the streets as a leisure time activity and more young people will be actively engage doing something they enjoy whilst expressing their thoughts at the same time.

Solution

By providing a safe, welcoming and supportive environment. By providing staff who understand their needs and can help them with their individual projects.

By setting up a record label so they have a positive outcome for their work. By setting up venues so they can show their talents. By bringing in rapping ambassadors so they have role models.
