Ethnic Minority Role Model Programme

“By investing in projects, and young people, that are dedicated to giving young Londoners an opportunity to get involved in positive activities, we can work to help every child and teenager at risk off the streets, and away from the dangers of crime.” Sadiq Khan, Mayor of London

Young males of African, Caribbean and mixed origin and ethnic minority girls and young women are not reaching their full potential in education and employment.

In 2018, BTEG surveyed young people and 70% said that they found that having a role model would have a positive impact on their life. 55% said that money was a factor why young people turned to crime or joined a gang, 32% felt social media played a role and 23% did so out of fear. Results from these surveys and a focus group held in 2016 to gather views around remaining in education and gaining employment have shaped the programme.

BTEG are pleased to announce that as of 2019 they have been awarded further funds from the Mayor’s Young Londoners Fund to expand the Routes2Success Programme to reach more boroughs across London. We will continue to inspire, motivate and raise the attainment of ethnic minority females and black males aged 10-25 in education, employment and entrepreneurship as well as those at risk of entering the criminal justice system. We will do this by using a dedicated volunteer force of successful role models from ethnic minority backgrounds who act as role models for the young people we work with.

The programme is funded by the Mayor’s Young Londoners Fund and will engage with a range of stakeholders including young black males, ethnic minority females, parents, role models, schools, pupil referral units, youth offending institutions, prisons and local community organisations.
