Lyng Youth Club Latest News
The LCA Youth Club runs on a Tuesday evening from 4pm-7pm and is open to anyone aged 10-17. It is youth-led which means the young people decide what activities and/or trips they want to try and they guide the staff members on what they think they need in terms of education etc. Recently, the young people have highlighted the need for talks on confidence, discrimination and mental health. In response to this, some of the young people were invited to the Albion Foundation to complete workshops surrounding these topics. It was a massive success and we are hoping to work closely with the Albion Foundation on a larger scale in the near future.
We endeavour to take the young people on trips a couple of times a year and this is also youth-led. .The youth club have been experimenting with different forms of art recently. We have had a brilliant workshop with Alex Vann (an artist and a singer/songwriter) where the youth club created, performed and recorded a song in the space of 3 hours. Their confidence soared after this activity. We have also had several pottery workshops, where many of the young people identified a new talent. In the near future we are hoping to arrange a football tournament at the request of some of the newer members.
There will be several other activities surrounding the World Cup. We have already been creating flags of the participating nations and have created individual football strips. We will also be ordering in food to eat whilst supporting England (or which ever team the young people choose to support!) in their World Cup journey.
