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.
Please note that we are currently unable to take sign-ups for Zazi due to the circumstances around the Coronavirus. Read more about OTR’s availability here. Here’s a message from Lewis to tell you more:
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.
One to one
We offer brief targeted intervention one-to-one work in schools primarily with young people who are at the risk of exclusion, not engaging in school and who may be interested in exploring their cultural identity.
Our schools offer includes targeted workshops which explore topics such as anger management, sexuality and gender, identity, role models, drugs and gangs.
This is our weekly run girls-only group for 13-16 year olds, 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
Girl Talk also runs in schools across Bristol and South Gloucestershire.
