Mentors in Violence Prevention

Wester Hailes Youth Agency are working with Forrester High School to launch and run their Mentors in Violence Prevention programme in school - MVP for short!

MVP is way of challenging bullying and violent behaviour by encouraging bystanders to find a safe way to intervene and help.  After a succesful and inspiring launch day, work is now well under way to establish the programme in school.  The Youth Agency are working with the S6 year group to train them as mentors in preparation for their work with younger pupils in the school.

Thanks to everyone involved so far for their hard work and enthusiasm which is making our job so much easier!
