Reboot Workshops for Schools

What is the School's Workshop Programme?

REBOOT provides an early opportunity to divert young people away from potential involvement in criminality.

REBOOT takes a strengths-based approach, focusing on the positive aspects of young people’s lives. REBOOT is offering Sussex based schools the opportunity to work with young people in a group setting of up to 10 young people, over a period of 4 to 6 weeks. REBOOT coaches will visit your school to provide these weekly sessions.


Who is the Workshop Programme for?

These workshops are available to children and young people living in Sussex, within the below criteria:

  • Years 7,8 and
  • Sitting on the continuum of need Level 2 or equivalent (Children with additional needs)- Early changes in behaviour/risk within the key drivers of crime (opportunity, profit, drugs, alcohol, change in character).
  • This programme is not designed to work with young people who currently have wrap around support.

What will Young People Get Out of the School Workshop Programme

The opportunity to learn about a variety of issues that can impact their life, issues that generally are not covered in depth within the school curriculum. They may not be experiencing these issues currently but our vision at REBOOT, as well as supporting those already at risk, is to equip young people to navigate the risks they may encounter in order to access future opportunities.

All REBOOT coaches are experienced in working with young people and sessions will be open whilst providing a safe place where young people can express their views, worries and opinions.

The programme will end with a positive activity in the last session that the group will agree on. Previous groups have taken part in boxing sessions, MMA, and rap lyric writing session.
