Led by qualified facilitators and trained ex-offenders, OC Impact uses theatre, role play and music to engage students at risk of anti-social behaviour, challenging attitudes to peer pressure, drugs and weapons, identity and difference, negative associations and street culture. Performances are devised by OC members, using personal testimonies and experiences which are then professionally scripted and directed. Sessions are high-impact, energetic and interactive and can be delivered to both large and small groups of young people. They are designed to improve behaviour and learning, through debating the possible alternatives to anti-social behaviour and committing crime.
Full presentation. A dramatic presentation, interlaced with role play and personal testimonies. This explores the choices young people face at school, at home and on the streets. Five trained ex-offenders work with a stage manager and facilitator, incorporating theatre, role play and music. This can then be followed by workshops.

6 – 12 week project. Weekly workshops (60-90 minutes) led by two trained ex-offenders and a facilitator. Over the course of the workshops we aim to demonstrate changed attitudes to peer pressure, drugs and weapons, divided loyalties, negative associations and street culture.
