Jamal Edwards Delve (JED) is a grassroots youth project founded & driven by Jamal Edwards MBE providing young people in Ealing with opportunities to learn, work and connect. Through our partners, supporters and the wider community, JED aims to provide a sense of community for youth in the local area – a social place of their own to develop their skills and competencies – adding value to their communities and supporting young people develop a positive identity – agency.
The weekly sessions are piloting across community centres in Acton starting in June 2019. The programme will include weekly open-access or drop-in sessions where young people can connect with each other and grow in a social space of their own. JED will provide youth with unique opportunities to nurture and develop the skills they need to succeed. Young people will be able to shape the programme and choose from a range of activities including music, art, filmmaking workshops, life skills & mental health sessions, fieldtrips & events, exposure to industries such as architecture, construction, fitness & health and much more!
Our weekly schedule includes open-access provision as well as sports and media-focused sessions. For more information about fieldtrips, specialised workshops in filmmaking & photography, employability, one-off events and more information about our programmes, please follow us on our social media pages or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
