Make Dreams A Reality (MDR) facilitate mentoring programs and workshops for, young people who attend secondary school, college, youth clubs, YOTs, PRUs and prisons throughout the UK. We at MDR are committed to challenging the barriers and tackling issues that young people face by applying new and innovative ways to engage, empower and motivate.
Many young people display challenging behaviour which is often misunderstood by peers and teachers. These young people are often, sadly, overlooked. We at MDR embrace ALL young people and believe that by channeling their talents and energy in a positive way will empower the young people, subsequently having a positive impact on their behaviour. We at MDR are committed to finding their unique and shining qualities which, more often than not, go undiscovered.
MDR stands apart from previously tried and failed organisations. Our mission is to reform young people by treating them as individuals and respecting their opinions. MDR’s work is directed at decreasing the crime figures that we see today; According to England and Wales police figures in Jan 2018 there has been a 21% rise in knife crime and a 20% rise in gun crime in the last 12 months.
Our vision for MDR is to create a learning environment that will be an invaluable resource to young people, aspiring mentors and the community at large. Our future aim is to be able to provide support or a friendly chat to any young person in need. MDR can make a difference....
The goal of the program is to identify youth who are predicted to have a turbulent transition from childhood to adulthood and to offer a positive support system.
We use language and scenarios that the young people use and are familiar with, in order to engage with them in open, frank discussions or role-play. The workshops fun and engaging, whilst still maintaining a structure and concrete foundation.
Our workshops are a suggested minimum of 2 hours per session, which would include a facilitator and assistant (if needed). The sessions are based on questions, answers, role play and physical engagement. We provide an arena for open discussion, understanding, evaluating and problem- solving. We want the young people to realise their dreams, whilst managing their reality.
Our client base ranges from 11 to 25 years old from varied backgrounds and social groups. We cover a range of different subject matters stretching from:
- Tackling knife/gun crime • Relationships
- Cyber Bullying
- Behavioural sessions
- Life coaching and mentoring
The above subjects form the basis for us to help tackle the barriers that are faced when young people approach the education system and embark on personal growth.
We at MDR are always looking for ways to improve our service. We welcome feedback and suggestions.
