In 2022 we went on 34 day trips to a number of different places with hundreds of young people...many of these trips would have been the first time that the young people had the opportunity to do such things...
Coral Reef Water Park
10 Pin Bowling
Central London/ Greenwich
To watch boxing, basketball and football matches
In 2022 we went on 7 residentials for a total of 28 days away!
Each residential had between 14 -29 young people attending and were for 3-5 days in length.
We did so many activities on these residentials: canoeing, paddle boarding, swimming, cycling, camp fires, arts and crafts, raft building, cooking, baking, climbing, archery, workshops, photography, dancing, volleyball, sports, visiting places and generally just having fun, making friends, learning about each other more, speaking English and feeling a sense of freedom.
These residentials are an essential part of Dost and really create so many positive memories and relationships that often last for years to come.
ESOL and Homework
As many young people need to wait some time before they get into school/ college or need extra help with reading/ writing/ speaking and homework, we run a 2 hour class every week at Custom House Library across the road from
Newham Leisure Centre.
The classes are very practical and hands on and focus on teaching the young people, day to day English which they will need in their lives.
We also do many art and creative projects, during English classes as a safe, quiet place where the young people can express themselves.
2022 was the busiest year ever at Dost!
We worked with 499 young people from 47 different countries and ran 362 sessions.
We saw 465 boys and 34 girls and had 6896 attendances overall.
We ran 90 Youth Club sessions, 79 football sessions and 53 English classes.
30 young people received a bike from The Bike Project, 23 young people received a mentor, 9 young people won the Jack Petchey Award, 7 young people completed Breadwinners, 4 young people completed Street Soccer Programme, 41 young people took part in research projects and 15 young people took part in a 3 month Phorography Project as well as lots more!
