As a voluntary youth led project the activities are very much led by the groups. However as issues or themes arise through regular contact we can tailor aspects of a program to meet those needs through another vehicle.
For example young people can address their need or challenge themselves through programs designed to encourage them to be responsible for their own actions and be self directed in their own goals.
This could take the form of an existing informal education program addressing a need such as drug or sexual health awareness or alternatively managing peer relationships through a 6 week community art course.
As we base our work on the long term relationships much or the informal experiential learning we facilitate depends on the trust we have established with young people.
In order to successfully run these programmes we have improved the co-operation and communication within the town between ourselves and local agencies and schools.
