AuthorsJenkins, C.
Abstract

With alarming suicide rates and a negative identity, Alevi youth felt invisible at school where no one knew about their faith.
Through collaboration between the Alevi community, Highbury
Grove secondary school and the University of Westminster, we
produced lessons on Alevism for the RE curriculum. Alevi pupils helped to design and deliver this successful, inclusive curriculum project, generating considerable interest from peers and the wider school community. Consequently they report a greater sense of belonging and
pride in their identity.
