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 â€“ a social place of their own to develop their skills and competencies â€“ adding value to their communities and supporting young people develop a positive identity â€“ 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. Â 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!
