Frequently Asked Questions

Where is it?

YMCA Scarborough, St Thomas Street, Scarborough


Is there a cost?

Nope, all costs are covered.


Who’s it for?

People of any colour, race or gender between the ages of 12 and 18.


What will we do on a typical week?

The group sets the agenda and decides upon what action to take. For example, at the moment the group are concerned about the state of young people’s mental health and are developing tools to better understand the situation and will then use this understanding to influence the people who could do more to support. This will include campaigning, social action to raise awareness, championing the needs of local young people and trying to develop new services with local organisations. As well as this the group are also planning what they want to do for their next team building activity.


Is there anything apart from the weekly activity?

We will be going on trips locally and nationally including a trip to the Houses of Parliament in London. These trips may be on other days of the week to the regular Tuesday meet. We also plan to hold a youth voices conference at the end of the project to engage with local, regional and national audiences.
