To empower young people and communities to improve their lives while understanding and reducing serious youth violence and the systemic conditions that cause it.
Growing up on the Grahame Park Estate, North West London, Temi Mwale was surrounded from a young age by violence in a variety of forms. In 2012, following the murder of her childhood friend Marvin in 2010, Temi founded Get Outta The Gang at 16-years-old. The group campaigned for increased provisions to address serious youth violence and for young people, since they were closest and most effected by the issue, to play a leading role in creating the solutions. The group evolved into a formal organisation offering services and implementing impactful programmes. In 2016, the organisation rebranded to The 4Front Project, symbolising a commitment to putting young people at the forefront.
The 4Front Project is a youth-led organisation. As such there are a range of leadership opportunities available for young people to impact their own communities and directly create change at a local, regional and national level.
