YSI – 2014 – Project

Following on our first YSI project 2013 this year we decided on looking a very local issue of the relevancy of homelessness in are area and the fact that most people are focused with blame on their wrong doings more than sympathy towards their awful living situations. Time and time again these poor people are being belittled, ridiculed and criticized for their bad life choices and because of this a lot of them think that their is now way out because of this though I like to think our project tries to get the message across that they actually can pull through and make some sort of life for themselves.

Our Project-

Add NewThis project deals specifically with youth homelessness (people between ages 15-25) and looks at the fact that not all of these issues are to do with them specifically taking alcohol and drugs, there should be obvious reasons that a lot of people may have problems at home to do with parents, sibling rivalries and unwanted abuse at the home.
