The BRV (Belonging, Resilience, Vocabulary) project works with a group of young men and boys in Sheffield and Barnsley to help them achieve a sense of belonging, resilience and improved understanding of themselves.

Through group workshops, art and photography sessions, the boys and young men will explore and enrich their emotional intelligence.

They will engage with themes such as personal and group identities, health and wellbeing, how to manage difficult emotions, citizenship and core values. All of this will help them navigate adolescence and help them aspire to positive futures.

The BRV project is based in Parkwood Academy in Sheffield and in Barnsley College and run weekly workshops. If you’d like to know more about the BRV project or get involved, you can contact project work Marcus via email on
