Street Child United Programmes
In addition to Street Child events, SCU also run a number of programmes designed to upskill and further impact the progression of young people living in street situations.
Beneficiaries: 10-30 young people
Duration: 12 months
’Change 10’ is one strand of the Young Leaders Programme with a specific focus on investing in the personal and professional development of young people who have taken part in previous SCU events. The programme is focused on leadership and other soft skills, English language, communication skills, advocacy learning and personal growth.
The entire programme lasts 12 months with three parts: a virtual element; up-skilling and mentorship; English language. Whilst the primary goal of Change 10 is up-skill individuals, there is also the aim that the young leaders will impart their learnings and skills to positively impact and develop the communities where they live. We say that the fourth part of the programme is the ‘giving back to the community’ piece.
