A new collaboration between Conscious Youth, Kirklees Council and Kirklees Youth Alliance will see the launch of an online virtual youth centre from 25th May.
'Youth Central' that will host live and recorded Zoom sessions, live chat and online activities for young people
aged 12-19. It is a space designed for them to have instant access to a range of activities, support and opportunities at the click of a button.
Sessions such as fitness, beauty, self-care, gaming, and arts and craft will run Monday- Friday. Some sessions will be ‘live’, giving young people the opportunity to interact ‘face-to-face’ with youth workers. Other sessions will be available pre-recorded to access at their convenience.
Youth Central will provide information on careers, training, support services, good news stories, competitions, social action and opportunities after school. The platform is a long term strategy for youth engagement, and is designed to be just as relevant beyond COVID-19.
