Young people will share their own experiences with the panel and can also ask questions. This will be an opportunity for Iconic personalities to interact with the Youth to gain an insight into their world.

The young people will be inspired by the Journeys of the speakers and they will be able to understand how they became successful. The objective is to inspire the young people to show them how following the right path will ensure they reach their goals.

Global Diversity Positive Action is a dynamic positive mechanism that will empower young people. Our programme targets young people before they make the world of crime a career path.

GDPA offers a bespoke targeted programme that combines mental and practical solutions.
GDPA influences, sustains and changes communities by empowering the local community to make changes and become self-sustaining.
Background
We are living through challenging times, in an era where unemployment rates are rising. Crime rates are rising as the number of young people offending and reoffending has increased.

Youth unemployment - those aged between 16 and 24 - was 974,000, or 20.8%. That is up from 957,000, or 20.5%, in the three months to November 2012. (Source Office for National Statistics)

Almost three-quarters of young offenders re-offended within a year of leaving custody Adrian Jenkins (February 2013) (Burton Mail)

Young people from underprivileged backgrounds find it harder to find employment due to lack of education and positive role models. Often the young person finds themselves with no prospects and no one to guide them towards the right path.

Due to the changing socio economic times young people are left with no real prospects and are drawn towards a life of crime. The individual is in an environment in which many people have already turned to crime.
