Positive Youth Foundation (PYF) celebrated the achievements of young people in Coventry with a night at the movies and also received the Queens Award for Voluntary Service (QAVS) on the same evening.
A total of six films were shown on the evening. The short films charted the achievements of the young people involved in the charity’s range of programmes.
The films highlighted the transformative impact these initiatives have had on their lives. Each of the seven strands of PYF were captured in the films, through a mix of documentary footage and interviews with staff and participants.
The films included ‘Fusion’, which was centred around Refugee Week and ‘Safe’ which highlighted the work of the ‘Staying Safe’ programme and young people tackling knife crime.
The young people discussed their involvement with Coventry 2021 City of Culture Bid, empowering women in their communities, how they are working to combat knife crime in the city and other opportunities that had been created through PYF.
Susie Murphy, Development Manager at the Positive Youth Foundation, said: “The evening was all about celebrating the incredible things that these young people have achieved during their time with PYF”.
