Ansar Youth Project (AYP) is an exciting and innovative youth organisation which specialises in targeting young people from a diverse range of disadvantaged and marginalised communities in Harrow and Brent. We are a pioneering organisation providing faith and culturally sensitive youth-work in local communities.
We believe that young people who are left behind by other organisations should not be ignored, rather engaged with. We believe that those young people who are disadvantaged should not be overlooked, but mentored. We believe that the young boy peddling drugs on the street corner should not be thought of as a lost cause, but a potential integrated citizen of the British community. In the end, the potential of our society is not being reached due to our inability to access and help those who are most in need, and most able to contribute to our society. Young people deserve a dedicated facility in which they can grow and develop as socially and spiritually conscientious individuals, who are well-integrated, active and model citizens of society.
Ansar Youth Project engages with young people by organising leisure activities, events and outings with clearly defined social objectives. Through activity-based informal learning, AYP’s Youth Workers support and guide young people in a positive, non-chastising manner in order to cultivate the holistic development of young people.
Ansar Youth Project:
• Run Weekly youth clubs with developmental workshops
• Run Employment programmes
• Organise Qualifications for young people
• Run Business Programmes
• Run Peer Mentoring Programmes
• Provide over 500 volunteer opportunities for young people a year
• Provide teamwork and leadership opportunities for over 100 young people per year
We are one of the only organisations in the UK that is completely young person led and removes all participation barriers. If we had to stop our services due to lack of support over 2,500 young people would no longer have access to youth services due to participation barriers.
