Empowering Inclusive Learning Through Legacy Youth Zone Croydon

Legacy Youth Zone, a charity part of the OnSide Network based in Croydon, is dedicated to helping young people realise their full potential. The Youth Zone offers three membership options – JUNIORS (ages 8-12), SENIORS (ages 13-19) and INCLUSION (ages 8-25) – and a variety of activities for all age groups.

Rees, a participant in the INCLUSION sessions for the past several months, has demonstrated remarkable progress despite facing challenges associated with Down’s Syndrome and non-verbal communication. This case study highlights his remarkable journey, focusing on his passion for woodwork, newfound abilities, and overall enthusiasm for diverse activities.

At the Croydon based Youth Zone, Rees has acquired proficiency in various woodwork equipment and has seen substantial development in his skills. He now brings his own project ideas to the sessions and is learning to communicate them effectively. Additionally, Rees has begun verbalising, including the achievement of saying names, showcasing his commitment to enhanced communication.

Rees was part of a dynamic duo that designed and raced a go-cart at the Stanley Arts festival, winning the prestigious “Best Design” award for his chariot. His enthusiastic engagement with guests showcased not only his artistic achievements but also his ability to interact confidently and positively with others.

Recently, Rees has expanded his horizons by venturing into the gym, working on core strength exercises with Demari. His keen interest in continuing these exercises at home reflects his dedication to personal development beyond artistic pursuits.

Rees’s journey serves as an inspiring testament to the transformative power of tailored inclusion programs in fostering personal growth and a sense of accomplishment. Legacy Youth Zone has helped thousands of young people like Rees to become more confident, increase their sense of independence and provide opportunities that aren’t accessible elsewhere.
