“Slacklining can contribute to reducing youth crime
By giving young people a positive identity, feelings of empowerment and by helping youth acquire leadership, teamwork and self-governance skills under adult supervision”. This is what was found when we carried out some research back in 2012 into the use of slacklining as a means of engaging youth who are at risk of or who are offending.
An example of a previous project - We piloted and ran, in conjunction with the police and crime commissioner, a program targeting ASB between 19:00 and 00:00 on Friday and Saturday nights. We would receive reports of youths gathering and causing a nuisance and instead of the police attending we would head down and set up slacklines at the location or at a suitable location nearby.
This freed up vital resources whilst also engaging the young people in something real, with real consequences, real purpose and potential reach beyond themselves which leads to positive affirmation and personal development.
Here at Ru-Slack...
Do you have a young person that isn’t interacting with your service, maybe your school has a truancy problem or perhaps you have groups of young people congregating and causing ASB issues for local residents.
Well Ru-Slack has a special outreach program that targets hard-to-reach youths and offers them an activity to do on their own terms. As slacklining is a relatively new activity to be offering and most young people haven’t had the opportunity to try it yet, it always proves popular.
On previous outreach programs we have run, we have had masses of interest and seen some really good results.
