XLP is creating positive futures for young people living in the inner city making a serious and sustainable impact on poverty and educational failure
XLP engages with approximately 1600 young people each week on a one-to-one and small group basis and works closely with over 50 schools and pupil referral units (PRUs), and on 33 estates. Currently, we work with children and young people across nine of the most deprived inner-London boroughs (Lambeth, Southwark, Lewisham, Greenwich, Newham, Tower Hamlets, Hackney, Islington and Camden).
The key objectives of XLP and our projects is to equip children and young people to make wise life choices by:
• choosing to stay in (or return to) school and succeed
• choosing not to be involved in (or to get out of) gangs, crime and anti-social behaviour
• choosing to set goals for the future and to work hard to achieve them
