YMCA Bolton has been running a youth club project for the last 36 months.
The aim of the session is to integrate sixth form students from St Catherine’s and Firwood school with organised activities, such as sport, arts & crafts, cooking, pool and team games.
An important aspect to the project is the development and supervising of St Catherine’s student’s peer mentoring Firwood students. This has been a good experience and a lot has been learnt on how to communicate & safeguard vulnerable people.
YMCA Bolton were very proud to take a young person from Firwood Sixth Form to Strasbourg for 10 days on a six nations project back in September 2015, with other young people from Bolton YMCA.
