Youth activities

We run a range of weekly activities in Croydon and North London. We also offer activities during holidays and monthly Saturday trips.

In our weekly youth groups we cook together, dance and play games, and have a combination of creative and practical sessions, from guitar lessons, singing and drama to language support, sexual health and rights and entitlements workshops. A caseworker is available at our mixed youth groups in both locations.

Our youth activities include:

Alternatively, as our weekly activities are run on a drop a drop-in basis, young people are welcome to just show up on the day. If they’d like support getting there, give us a call to see if we have a volunteer available who could meet them to bring them along.
