Between March and May 2022, Changing Our Lives are pleased to offer schools in Sandwell the opportunity to get involved in a new project. Following the murder of George Floyd in the US on 25th May 2020, the world sat up and conversations have been taking place all over the world, with a particular focus on the stereotypes imposed upon black men by society.
In schools and youth groups across the borough, Changing Our Lives will facilitate workshops, assemblies and mini-events to young people around the age group of 13 – 14. These sessions will be led by local black men who will share their stories and experiences, offering young black boys positive male role models through strengthening a positive sense of their identity, whilst challenging the negative stereotypes that exist in wider society.
Changing Our Lives will work with you to deliver these sessions in a way that best suits. Sessions will be secured on a first-come-first-served-basis.
