The draw is in 3 days 15 hours 28 minutes
My name is James Wong and I currenrly serve as project lead for the Eastbourne abandofbrothers.
Abandofbrothers (ABOB) provides a unique rites-of-passage mentoring programme to young men (18-25) in danger of becoming or already involved with the criminal justice system (CJS).
It is a social action solution, aimed at empowering the Eastbourne community to tackle its own issues. It is delivered by older male volunteers local to Eastbourne supported by a central hub providing expertise and training.
The young men are given the support they need to enable a life free of crime and full of meaning, purpose and connection.
Through connection with the Eastbourne ABOB community they are also provided with practical support to access professional services, training and work experience.
The Quest programme starts with a 3-day residential, spent in nature, away from every day distractions and routines, for the young men to work through a challenging process containing exercises focusing on emotional expression and cognitive understanding.
This is followed by a 12-week schedule of one-to-one meetings with their mentor as well as the full local ABOB community (‘circles’). The completion is marked with a ‘homecoming’ graduation ceremony.
The volunteer mentors are recruited from the young men’s own local community and come from a diverse range of cultural, socio-economic and professional backgrounds.
Awarded the Queens Award for Volunteering in 2015, abandofbrothers has a profoundly positive effect on the young men who go through the programme and has been proven to reduce substantially the frequency of offending.
We need your help so we can continue to offer and even expand our service!
Thank you for your support and good luck!
