What we offer...

At the weekly meetings we offer a range of activities to do both inside and outside. You can see what we have been up to recently by following us on Instagram - @nmyp. These are split into...

  • Things that are available every week. This includes things like skateboard ramps (if it is dry), table tennis, snooker, air hockey, games consoles, football, karaoke, craft etc. Young people can choose which activities they wish to do. However, once a term we have a planning meeting where young people put forward their own ideas of what they would like to do.

  • Each week we run one additional activity for the young people to choose if they wish. This term we have had a range of activities on offer ranging from a giant inflatable assault course to team challenges to visitors such as an animal man to a circus skills workshop! We also run sports workshops each week.

    Young people are free to choose either or both of the options each week. On top of this we run a programme of trips and activities outside the weekly meetings. A typical term will include camping/residential trips, activities such as scuba diving, skateboarding, trips to places of interest and opportunities to learn new skills.

    D of E

    In addition to the above, young people aged 14 and above have the additional option to do the D of E award. Some choose to do just D of E, some choose to do just the youth club meetings whilst some choose a mixture of both!

    We have several young people aged 14-18 completing their D of E service element with us by helping out at our weekly meetings for younger members.. Please get in contact with us if you would be interested in helping in this way.

    Anything else?

    Part of our proposal and underlying philosophy is to equip young people to make a difference in their community and we hope that through some of the activities on offer they will have opportunies to do this, like, for example with community service or helping people less fortunate than themselves.
