Challenging youth racism: project report

David Temple, Nigel Copsey , Alex Carter

Research output: Book/ReportCommissioned report


‘Challenging Youth Racism’ (CYR) is a Big Lottery funded project delivered by HumanKind (two project workers) in partnership with Teesside University (two researchers). The project was developed in response to concerns around high levels of prejudice and discrimination and disproportionate levels of racially and religiously motivated hate crime within North East England, an area with a large White British population. CYR has delivered antiracism interventions to over 7,500 young people (aged 11-19) across the region since July 2016. The bulk of our interventions are our awareness raising workshops and our Racism Awareness Project (RAP) which are run in a variety of educational and community-based settings.
The report will highlight the effectiveness of CYR interventions delivered to young people against its stated objectives, to: increase acceptance of others, increase awareness on the impact of racism, and to encourage young people to challenge/report racism.
