Young people in Wrexham have a packed series of activities to look forward to as the new look Youth Service launches its Autumn Programme.
The programme offers a range of exciting activities including creative and performing arts, healthy eating projects, issue based activities, outdoor pursuits, competitions, service activities, residential weekends and trips out.
They are designed around a curriculum which aims to provide young people with informal educational opportunities that develop their skills and gives them the experience to have a say in matters that affect them. It also gives young people a platform to express themselves, gives access to constructive leisure activities and helps them to build their confidence and resilience.
There are also a range of other exciting opportunities that young people can become involved with including the Duke of Edinburgh Award Scheme, health and well-being projects, Senedd yr Ifanc, Nantyr Outdoor Education Centre, the Youth Justice Service, Sports Development, Leisure Service and also opportunities with voluntary organisations.
The Youth Service is available to young people aged 11 – 25 years staff welcome new members and new ideas for activities. There’s more information about what’s going on at www.youngwrexham.co.uk, the Info Shop on Chester Street, in Wrexham town centre or telephone 358900.
The Youth Service in Wrexham has recently undergone a major review and created a modern Youth Service which is flexible and responsive to the needs of young people in Wrexham.
The service is delivered out of Centres of Excellence in Llay, Coedpoeth, Ruabon and the Vic in the town centre.
Youth Work teams also work in the wider community using a variety of methods to engage with young people at times and in places that suit them. The teams plan activities in partnership with young people to make sure that what is on offer is what young people actually want
