Benefits of Youth Boxing and behavioural Therapy

Beneficiaries: Youth

AYBI - Action Youth Boxing Intervention is a response to youth at risk of joining gangs and offers free boxing classes supported by behavioural therapy sessions. AYBI is a true grassroots initiative founded by Albert, once a gang member, who puts his heart and time from day one to empower vulnerable youth to give back to his community.

AYBI has benefitted from expertise support on different occasions resulting in a positive effect on its growth. However, he is looking for a professional to support him with backing up his daily practices with research and disclose the impact of his work.

Depending on your time and skills you are welcome to conduct interviews and conduct a (small) empirical research.

 

tracking activity for health

TCV, the community volunteering charity, works every day across the UK to create healthier and happier communities for everyone by connecting people and green spaces to deliver lasting outcomes for both. As each community and the people living there have different needs, they strive to improve wellbeing, conserve a well-loved outdoor space or bring people together to promote social cohesion, combat loneliness or enhance employment prospects.

Green Gyms, as part of TCV, are fun and free outdoor sessions where people are guided in practical activities such as planting trees, sowing meadows and establishing wildlife ponds. Unlike other conservation projects, the emphasis is very much on health and fitness - volunteers warm up and cool down in preparation for a range of light to vigorous activities to suit all abilities.

They are currently only monitoring volunteers change in level of activity through surveys and would love have support and advice on carrying out research using other measures – such as activity trackers etc.
