In 2018 Jimmy Cauty's ADP Riot Tour continues with a coast to coast tour across the USA. We want to bring a group of young people from Toxteth and Dingle areas of Liverpool to New York, the first leg of the tour to act as official invigilators and ambassadors.
We will be working with the young people to ‘train them up’ to act as invigilators, and official representatives of the ADP and the City of Liverpool, giving them confidence to speak in public, with groups and schools and interact with press and do interviews etc.
The young people who accompany the ADP to NY will then train up some NY kids to take over as ADP Ambassadors, who then take the ADP on to the next site and so on, across America until it returns back to Liverpool with the last host group of young people from America who will ‘hand back’ the ADP to the Florrie.
The ADP is currently being used as part of The Florries new education and training programme for young people. The instillation allows us to open up conversations with young people about social matters. The discussion groups are learner led activities that make use of guest speakers, their peers and key figures in the local community. The programme encourages their sense of self worth and achievement and identifies ambition, giving young people the confidence to achieve their goals.
Empowering our young people to be part of the ADP World tour is an amazing and life changing experience for them.
