Get the youth outside and into the community – focus on sport, forging links with the elderly, helping others and by doing voluntary work/jobs.
A bit like the old police Lifestyle scheme. The children are the future. They need to respect what’s already here, and give back to the town. You need to make it appealing for them to want to stay rather than move away to university. Teach children trades through apprenticeships especially those who aren’t academic. Get them ready for the world of work. The Expect Youth programme is great for the very young and needs developing further for older children. Help get children out of poverty by getting their parents back to work and offering free childcare (sports programmes) in school holidays. This will all help Doncaster’s future economy.
