Uplift Youth Workshop

Resolving the Roots of Youth Violence

June 13 - 14th
Regents University, London

Offering live video streaming to those who can’t attend in person

Hi, we’re Jamie Smart, Dorothy Kolomeisky and Robin Lockhart and we have one focus right now (which is why we’re reaching out to you):

To offer you a little known solution to youth violence and antisocial behavior problems that are deteriorating our communities.

In response to the spiked rise of knife-related youth crime in London over the past year, and the anti-knife campaign kicked off in December 2017, we’re ready to work together to make a massive difference in the lives of young people both in London and across the globe.

You’re invited

The Uplift Youth Workshop is a 2-day pilot program for professionals working with youth with the vision of transforming violence, and other antisocial behavior, into peace and cooperation. We’re looking for a small group of heart-centered people to take part in exploring a new approach that could change everything.

This project may be a great fit for you if:

  • You’re a teacher, teacher trainer, or community youth leader, and want to be part of the solution.
  • You feel punitive and top-down approaches aren’t working.
  • You’re interested in focusing on the capabilities and innate wellbeing of the young people you work with.
  • You’re open-minded and willing to experiment with a new approach.
  • You feel respect and compassion for the young people you work with—no matter how troubled their behavior may seem.
  • You’re open to the possibility of taking a leadership role in offering a new solution to the epidemic of youth violence and social issues.

The Uplift Youth Workshop Will Help You:

Whether you’re a teacher, a trainer of teachers, a community program or outreach professional, a mentor or social worker, the Uplift Youth Workshop will help you:


  • Explore how to make positive connections with even the hardest to reach youth.
  • Anchor solid relationships—even in the most challenging situations.
  • Inspire conversations with youth that will help them shift their mind-set and begin to see new choices.
  • Turn conflict into understanding.


  • Eliminate stress in your own life—both at work and home.
  • Gain access to a clear and calm mind when everyone around you may be reactive.
  • Gain access to your own inner guidance system.
  • Help you to cultivate a Trusted Advisor status with the youth you serve.
  • Listen deeply to what someone is really expressing beyond the words.
  • Help youth clear limiting beliefs and habitual behavior patterns.
  • Help youth build resilience and motivation—by beginning to realize their own value.


  • Gain understanding of a new solution that has the power to transform any situation.
  • Create life-changing value for the population you’re serving.

The Details

Participation is free. To hold your place a deposit of £75 will be required for those attending in person. There is no deposit necessary for those attending via live stream.

Selected candidates will be required to attend both days and invited to join our new community for youth workers that will offer support, connection and resources.

We are also offering live-video streaming, which will include participation and inclusion in the discussions and breakout sessions for those who can’t attend in person (this is a great option for anyone not living in London). You will be responsible for covering your own accommodations, meal costs and transport.

Thanks and big love,
