The Alan Senitt Memorial Trust


A project run in partnership with the government-backed Shared Futures Project and Streetwise which trains Year 10 pupils to become active communal leaders and will link schools from Mainstream and Faith schools. The pilot project commenced in January 2009 with 60 pupils from 4 schools from Middlesex & Hertfordshire participating. They graduate on 8 July 2009. For 2009/2010 the programme is to be extended to 6 schools and will include additional modules so that the programme not only covers leadership skills training but interfaith dialogue as well. Within the programme each school organises and runs a local community project and have to involve more people in that project.

Alan Senitt was a bright young Communal leader and political activist who was murdered aged 27 in July 2006. The Trust has ben set up in his memory and the aim of this particular project is to give young people the necessary skills to become active leaders in their own communities and the wider community. It also aims to bring young people of different faiths together. The 2008/2009 pilot project linked 4 schools - one mainstream multi-faith school, one Jewish school, one Seikh school and one C of E school. The teachers at the schools working with us are all very committed to the programme being successful. The successful students will become Alumni of the Trust and will help run the project in future years. It is hoped that this project will be extended to additional schools each year and eventually maybe run nationally and/or as part of the Citizenship syllabus. This programme costs £12,000 per 4 schools so for 2009/10 the cost will be £15,000. Costs include course leaders, materials, premises costs, travel costs, local project costs and school costs for supply staff.
