Greenhouse programmes are open to everyone but the coaches also target young people most in need of support, such as those struggling with their education, attendance and behaviour. They set high expectations of self discipline, attitude and time keeping.
External evaluations of Greenhouse’s work show that within a year of being on a programme young people attend more school, behave better and outperform their school peers academically (3% ahead in maths, English and science).
They are also fitter and healthier, more confident and show improved engagement with their community (such as avoiding negative influences such as crime, drugs and anti-social behaviour).
