Youth Violence

Turves Green Boys’ School welcomes inspiring guest speaker Alison Cope to educate pupils on youth violence.

In a captivating and heartfelt event, we had the privilege of hosting Alison Cope, a remarkable guest speaker and mother of Joshua Ribera, who tragically lost his life to violence in 2013. Alison’s unwavering commitment to preventing youth violence by sharing her son’s unique life and death story has made a profound impact on countless young people.

Alison’s visit provided our KS4 pupils with a valuable opportunity to learn about the realities and consequences of youth violence. Through her powerful storytelling, she not only shed light on the devastating loss she experienced but also highlighted the importance of making positive choices and the far-reaching impact of violence on individuals, families, and communities.

Alison’s talk was both educational and thought-provoking, leaving a lasting impression on our pupils. Her ability to connect with the audience on an emotional level truly captivated their attention and sparked meaningful conversations about the issue of youth violence.

Through her tireless efforts, Alison has become a beacon of hope and inspiration, working tirelessly to create awareness and drive change. By sharing her personal journey, she strives to empower young people to make informed decisions and choose non-violence over aggression.

The impact of Alison’s visit extended beyond the event itself. Our KS4 pupils expressed their appreciation for the time and educational opportunities that Alison provided. Her story touched their hearts and left them with a deeper understanding of the consequences of violence.
