The charity’s new campaign invites you to attempt your own challenge and show your support for providing opportunities for young people.
“Giving young people positive opportunities can turn their lives around. Our #Switch180 campaign highlights that we must do more as a society to provide positive opportunities for our young people.”
Snow-Camp conducted research in collaboration with YouGov at the end of last year. Perhaps unsurprisingly, the research found that opportunities for young people played a massive part in a young person’s personal development. Positive opportunities can motivate and inspire anyone from any walk of life to achieve their potential and make real-world, positive steps.
The study found that this is particularly true amongst young people, where the possibility of falling in to crime and antisocial behaviour is higher. By providing young people, particularly in inner cities, with positive opportunities like the Snow-Camp programme, the risk of them falling in to crime is greatly reduced.
76% of young people believe that a lack of positive opportunities puts young people at an increased risk of falling into crime and antisocial behaviour.
The statistics speak for themselves, and highlight the need for Snow-Camp’s work in today’s Britain.
Snow-Camp are asking you to share your own #Switch180 moment on social media, describing how a positive opportunity in your life has influenced you for the better, remember to use the #Switch180 hashtag.
