The Godwin Lawson Foundation – a new charity working to tackle knife crime – is looking for young people to become Ambassadors.
The role of the Young Ambassadors is to support other young people involved with the Godwin Lawson Foundation (GLF) and to visit schools, colleges and youth clubs presenting and promoting the charity’s message of peace on the streets.
Ambassadors, who are likely to be between 13 and 17 years old, will need to undertake a series of workshops on leadership and communication and take part in a residential training course, to meet the charity’s requirements.
The Foundation was set up in memory of Godwin Lawson who was tragically killed in a knife crime in 2010. It aims to raise awareness of the positive role that sport and education can play in challenging gang culture and the use of weapons as a status symbol.
