Since the start of Jan 2015 we have had lots of exciting things happening in SOSYP (South of Stroud Youth Partnership). Our biggest change this term has been the opening and delivery taking place at Dursley’s brand spanking new youth centre, VIBE. A purpose built, vibrant, safe place for young people to go so they can access information, advice and guidance in Dursley. The youth centre is a partnership with the Town Council and other delivery partners such as The Tabernacle Church, The Door, Rednock School, ConnectAT and hopefully more community groups soon. The centre has been used already by over 50 young people and the numbers keep growing. We are running an open session on a Monday from 6.30-8.30pm and a café style session on Thursdays from 3.30-5.30pm.
Elsewhere within the project we have been continuing to support young people in Wotton, Berkeley & Cam, and over Half Term we run a sports Leadership Course, First Aid & Food Hygiene course which were all well received by those who attended.
This coming term we are developing a garden & building project at Vibe, just in time for the nice summer weather and we are planning loads of informative and fun sessions such as cooking, cyber safety and Easter activities. Call Vix Thomas on 07969 955419 to find out what is going on in your area.
