Step Up, Stand Out

Step Up, Stand Out

– Who does this project target?

This project was designed to target urban young people and those from the Black Minority and Ethnic (BME) Community.

 

– When did this take place?

2011 & 2012

 

– Why was there a need?

PJ’s Community Services were invited to partner with BTEG (www.bteg.co.uk).

BTEG’s mission is to end racial inequality. We believe that the contribution of all communities makes a nation, builds dynamic local communities, generates wealth and improves well-being. We champion fairness, challenge discrimination and pioneer innovative solutions to empower BAME communities through education, employment and enterprise. Our activities involve working with Government, business, public services, BAME organisations and the media.

The program was designed around innovation and the use of arts and education to connect with young people and their parents, to explore opportunities and build a platform for resilience against poor choices to promote education and enterprise.

 

– What was the rationale for the methodology?

As a national organisation BTEG want to maximise our work with central government departments by connecting more directly with local BME and mainstream activities aimed at closing racial inequalities. BTEG strongly believes that race inequalities will persist in some areas such as unemployment, and will take generations to close unless we start to inspire local BME individuals and organisations to get actively involved in local decision making processes.

Many public bodies have a ‘duty to involve’ and there will also be an Equality Act in the near future. This is likely to present new challenges for public bodies and BME communities and organisations. BME third sector organisations need to understand how to use the levers they have, such as comprehensive area assessments, duty to involve, petitions, legislation and EHRC, etc. to improve opportunities and outcomes in their communities. There will also be the need to appreciate other equality strands and the importance of making useful alliances with agencies leading on these strands. If this does not happen there is a real danger that race equality issues will not feature as they should.

With the vision of BTEG in mind and our innovative approaches to tackling some of societies most challenging situations we were able to develop the step up and stand out one day program  to encourage participants to think higher, sign post to organisations that are able to offer further support and connect with other groups to peer support.

If this does not happen there is a real danger that race equality issues will not feature as they should.

BTEG want to see all ethnic groups achieving similar success in the education system and the labour market. Together we can make a difference by challenging poor and unfair policy and practice wherever we find it. Whatever your background you are welcome to work with us to find the right policy and delivery solutions.
