Our theory of change puts young people at the centre of all we do – this is why we listen to young people in every project and why we go to where young people are, in schools and in their community. We take a relational approach to all our work and prioritise building long -term connections with young people, through quality, fun, innovative and accessible opportunities.
Using Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs as a starting point, we identified 4 key strands to our model that are essential to enable young people to achieve their potential. All of our engagement with young people, starts with them and ensures that they are nurtured, inspired, connected and empowered so they can make the most of their life.
We are always looking for enthusiastic people to join our youth hub and after-school teams. If you can help us, we can provide you with training, support and parties!
Can you spare a few hours a week to hang out with young people, playing games, doing cooking or listening to them? There are so many different projects to get involved with, both face-to-face and behind the scenes, just email to find out more, or check out our vacancies.
We rely on the generous donations of individuals and communities to enable us to continue running and developing our provision, as well as increasing the number of young people we work with. So, if you’d like to run a race, hold a bake sale or jump out of a plane, raising vital funds for Matrix while you do, then we’d be happy to support you!
