Braveheart: Homeboy visits

To help us explore the ideas behind Homeboy, we have invited its founder, Father Greg Boyle, to visit us in May. His visit will present a great opportunity to hear about the impact Homeboy has had on his community and find out about his own unique and inspirational strategy for developing kinship within communities, empowering the disengaged to become positive, committed and valued community assets. 

Accompanying Father Greg will be former gang member and now Homeboy worker James Horton and gangs expert Professor Jorja Leap. Events will be held at:

  • Glasgow City Chambers 28th May THIS EVENT IS NOW FULL
  • Edinburgh Castle 29th May THIS EVENT IS NOW FULL
  • Kilmarnock Centrestage Music Theatre 30th May

We view Braveheart as a valuable investment in the future of Scotland’s communities and its young people. We hope that you will be able to join us to learn more about this exciting project and share in the delivery of what we hope will be further success for Scotland.
