RECLAIM - Gorton Boys 2010

November 2010 saw the launch of the eighth RECLAIM project. Returning to Gorton, the RECLAIM team are working with a group of thirteen - fourteen year old boys from the area. Itís still early days but the young people have already shown great enthusiasm for their local area by throwing a number of parties for community members.

Following in the RECLAIM tradition the young people have written a fantastic manifesto, in the document the young people outline the issues that concern them and topics they aim to tackle such as stereotypes, engaging in their community and realising their potential! Although Gorton has received negative attention in the past, this group of amazing young people along with the help of the RECLAIM project will use the next six months to combat this reputation.
