Cornai - His journey begins inside
A short film produced for Trailblazers Mentoring, highlighting the power of mentoring through the eyes of an ex young offender.
As we follow the physical journey through Cornai’s present life and work, he shares what he loves about his life now and reflects back on where he came from, what lead him to offend, why he was able to leave behind his criminal conviction and how he changed his life with the support of his mentor and family.
Trailblazers is a national charity which helps young offenders to change their paths and create more positive futures. To put their work in perspective, their re-offend rate has dropped to just 18% compared to the national average of 56%.
The UK has endured very high youth reoffending rates for decades, delivering a constant financial and social burden on society. Part of the problem is that the opportunities for ex-offenders to enter employment upon release are limited. (A recent YouGov survey suggested 50% of respondents would not employ ex-offenders). Trailblazers are working hard to break some of the misconceptions surrounding youth offenders with a view of offering them better opportunities to change their lives around.
