What they do?
The Avenues Youth Project provides a wide range of activities and projects for young people to participate in. All their projects are devised following consultation with young people themselves, and all offer the chance to gain accreditation.
They use all their projects as a way of getting key messages across to our members in a non-threatening way. These include information concerning sexual health, drugs education, health eating and speaking and listening skills.
In addition to our projects, they also raise funds to enable young people to broaden and widen their experiences. In the last 2 years they have taken a group on Ski Camp and another older group went as part of a British Council visit to China.
Support into Education and Work
Alongside their project work, youth workers regularly support young people with CV writing, job applications, references, interview skills and other support needed to assist young people as they progress from school to the world of work. They also encourage their young people to remain in school or college and support them with college applications, providing evidence of their achievements within the club to support any applications they make.
