The objective of the Academy is to provide a fun, challenging environment for young people involved in anti-social behaviour or with behavioural issues. The Academy is designed to foster a spirit of team work, self respect and discipline while being influenced by positive and relevant role models. The young people involved take part in mixed martial arts, healthy living and safety education and various fitness exercises. There are also inspirational talks from ex-offenders and celebrities which are designed to challenge the perception of the young people both of themselves and their views of society.

Referrals are now being taken by the organiser, Sam Rowe, for males and females aged between 16 and 21. The venue is Fight Science, Hospital Road, Aldershot GU11 2BT. For more information contact Sam Rowe.

The Hampshire Youth Offending Team – Volunteering Placements for Young People logo

The Youth Offending Team work with young people between the ages of 10 and 18 who have committed, or are at risk of committing, an offence. Their aim is to prevent reoffending and help repair the harm caused by that young person’s offending to their victim(s) and the local community. The majority of their young people will be completing around 20 hours voluntary work to benefit the community as part of their court order. Usually they will be doing this alongside intervention work with a member of their team.

The work is always carried out with the supervision of a Youth Offending Team member of staff or volunteer who will assist the young person with the task(s) and will be there to oversee their progress. If your organisation is interested in supporting young people and you would like to find out more details please contact Brian Leigh, Placements Officer, Hampshire Youth Offending Team.
