Project Zazi is the name for our work with Black and Minority Ethnic (BME) young people tackling issues of inequality, discrimination, oppression, culture and identity.
Zazi means ‘Know Yourself, Know Your Strength’. The project offers a mix of one-to-one support and different kinds of group work, where you can explore your identity and culture, try new activities and learn new skills. The aim of Project Zazi is to promote good physical and mental health, healthy relationships and positive lifestyles.
There are currently two groups running:
Boys 2 Men (in collaboration with Empire Fighting Chance)
This is Zazi’s boys-only group that allows you to explore ‘manhood’ through non-contact boxing and group discussion around anger, conflict resolution and gang exit strategies.
Tuesdays 5pm – 7pm @ Empire Fighting Chance, The Mill, Easton, BS5 0YJ.
This is our weekly run girls-only group designed to empower girls and young women to make informed choices about their aspirations, relationships, health and education. The group explores the world through the eyes of women of colour, and draws upon both the challenges and opportunities that occur for young women within Bristol to develop social action projects.
Mondays @ Docklands Youth Centre, St Pauls, BS2 8UA.
