WWMT is supporting The V. Leaders project which is a youth led programme planned and inspired by young people living in Tower Hamlets. It targets some of the most hard to reach and influential young people and enables them to develop as an individual inspired towards making a positive change. The program of work is devised by young people (who set up a steering committee with 5 volunteers) and includes a series of work experience, workshops and Sports coaching training. The V. Leaders target young people from disadvantaged background such as people from low income, unemployed and at risk of offending.
