Schools Programme

"Children Supporting Children"


 
StreetInvest's Schools Programme aims to raise awareness of street children and their experiences among students in the UK, while developing student's empathy and social awareness, through a number of workshops and assemblies for Primary and Secondary Schools.

StreetInvest run assemblies and workshops as an introduction to our work for students if the school is considering making us their 'Charity of the Year' or to help inspire students if the school is holding a fundraising event on our behalf.
 
Our staff are DBS certified and fully trained to deliver the workshops, requiring no additional resources from schools. Please get in touch with eddie.ottmann@streetinvest.org for more information. Click here to see who we have worked with in the past.


Working with Primary Schools


StreetInvest offer an assembly and a half day workshop for primary school students.
 
Our assembly for younger children tackles the difficult topic of street children with age appropriate themes. The workshop incorporates interactive, creative, group activities and is structured around four questions which encourage younger students to think about the everyday lives of street children and the challenges they face...
 
  • Where will I sleep?
  • What will I eat?
  • Who can help me?
  • Where in the world am I?
 
From building shelters out of cardboard boxes, to creating a make shift meal from a 'rubbish bin', the activities can be tailored to incorporate subjects including geography, drama and PSHE.

Working with Secondary Schools

 

StreetInvest offer three assemblies and a workshop to secondary school students.
 
The assemblies help key stage 3 and 4 students explore the issue of street children through three different themes, Hope, Social Justice and Safety, all of which encourage critical thinking about social issues and rights, as well as street children's day to day experiences. Reflective questions encourage students to think about their own lives and how they would feel or behave in challenging situations.
 
The workshop is designed to help students develop their relationship building skills by using techniques from the street work training we deliver to local partners who work with street children. This unique workshop develops young people’s ability to empathise, look at a situation from different perspectives and encourages reflection on people whose lives and experiences are very different from our own and how that might inform subsequent choices and actions.
