A Community Network for Bowes Park and Bounds Green
Positive Youth News Haringey have launched a new poster campaign which challenges the negative stereotypes of young people in the borough.
As part of their PYTHONS (Positive Youth Thriving in Haringey Obtaining Notable Success) project, 14 young people from across Haringey have had their achievements highlighted to challenge the perception many have of young people from the borough.
I have been very impressed with the way that the Positive Youth News Haringey team is relentlessly supportive of our local young people - and the innovative ways which they have gone about their campaigning work.
PYNH, which is led by 10 young people aged 16-25 from the borough, worked throughout the summer on preparing the campaign and production of posters, including the organising the photoshoots at the Bernie Grant Arts Centre in Tottenham.
The poster campaign will officially be launched at a VIP event at London’s City Hall, hosted by Haringey Assembly Member Joanne McCartney on the 9th September 2014. Soon after the posters will be available for schools, colleges, libraries, youth centres and community spaces to display.
