  •  Ensure that young people are supported as they move from primary to secondary school.
  • Provide access to quality arts, sports and cultural activities, and allow those with an
    interest and/or talent in any area to continue after the programme has ended.
  • Bring together young people from different geographical and ethnic communities
    to help break down prejudice and misunderstanding.
  • Give young people opportunities for personal development, including the development
    of self-discipline, self-respect and self-confidence, enabling them to communicate more
