Youth Programme

The Youth Centre at Coram’s Fields is a safe space for young people aged 8 – 19, to experience achievement, leadership, enjoyment, friendship, and recognition. Young people progress into adulthood equipped to manage the challenges ahead of them; they have meaningful relationships with their community and have broader horizons.

Support from the Youth Programme provides young people with an increased self-awareness of their behaviour, thoughts and feelings and impact on others. It provides diversion from gang activity and culture and a better social support network for young people who become more able to take up opportunities.

Our Dedicated Projects, Services and Activities

Running 3 days per week, our open access drop-in sessions include a mixture of social activities such as pool, table tennis and computer games. Here, young people can interact with their peers and get to know our team of Youth Workers.

Our AQA Unit Award and Arts Award accredited music programme is run out of our music studio on site; featuring a recording booth, latest Apple computers and a collection of other equipment. Our Music Studio is available to be booked 1:1 during drop-in sessions and during the day to work on projects.

We are fortunate to have a dedicated Arts Room with facilities to draw, paint, craft and express yourself. Art features heavily in our Girls Group and Generations classes!

Delivered to small groups in-line with National Youth Agency guidance on the ground floor, with 3 workstations, each featuring their own hob, ingredients and utensils.

Run weekly by a dedicated member of staff, featuring a mix of art, cooking and holistic support. Our activities are self-selected by our young people, ensuring there is something for everyone!

Our dedicated employability sessions are available twice per week as part of drop-in sessions. Young people can access vital support, from CV and interview advice to careers support. Our partnerships across the local community ensure our young people have access to mentorships, training, and entry level work. It is designed to equip participants with the skills knowledge and experience to seek work and eventually progress into a career. The scheme works alongside several different industries; law, media, hospitality, finance and many more.

Available throughout the week

Intensive support for young men at-risk of youth violence available 1:1 with our Senior Youth Worker, this supports our partnership programme, Project 10/10, which aims to work alongside young people to help equip them with the skills and resilience needed to make positive pro-social choices and deal with difficult situations.

An embedded part of our programme includes detached youth work. This includes spending time on local housing estates where high levels of anti-social behaviour amongst young people is reported. It can also include spending time in local parks or other areas young people are known to spend time away from the Youth Centre. During the pandemic outreach became more targeted and involved meeting young people 1:1 or in small groups in places they feel comfortable. We adapted music, employability and fitness sessions to an outdoor delivery model by using two bicycles and trailers to transport any equipment.

Our amazing trips include: paintballing, go karting, ice skating, rock climbing, canoeing and white water rafting, and are run mostly over the school holidays.
