Youth & Campus
CST works to give young people in the Jewish community the confidence and skills to live confident and safe lives as British Jews and as members of wider society. We do this for young Jewish people of school age though Streetwise, a partnership project between CST and the Jewish sporting and youth charity Maccabi GB, and Stand Up! a government-funded project, empowering young people to tackle discrimination, antisemitism and anti-Muslim hate. We also support Jewish students via our full time Student Security Co-ordinators.
Streetwise works nationally with Jewish schools and Community organisations, enhancing the personal safety and development of young Jewish people to support their physical and emotional wellbeing. Streetwise is a joint project of CST and Maccabi GB.
Streetwise runs courses and workshops on antisemitism, leadership training, internet safety, personal safety, Krav Maga (self defence) and many more subjects. Using a system of peer mentoring, supported by professional youth workers, Streetwise can help individuals in need and provide guidance and help.
Streetwise embraces all Jewish youth regardless of their religious, political or social outlook. All sessions are run by fully qualified instructors and are tailored for different age groups.

CST works with Jewish students on campuses throughout the country, helping to train volunteers in physical protection and security. We welcome all Jewish students to join this effort.
CST asks that any instances of antisemitic abuse or discrimination on campus be immediately reported to CST’s office, or to one of the many student security volunteers.
