During the Easter Half term, Young Bristol were delighted to receive a generous donation of Easter eggs from the local construction recruitment company, Leggwork!

Young Bristol were amazed when we received a donation of over 180 Easter eggs from corporate partner, Leggwork. The local recruitment company donated this large sum of Easter eggs to be handed out to all young people across our Community Youth Club network attending our Holiday Clubs, who may not have received an Easter egg this year.

It was amazing to see the excitement from young people when our team distributed eggs across our youth clubs! Thank you to Leggwork for your kind donation, we hope to continue working together in the future!

Young Bristol attend World Youth Club's Leadership Institute 2024!

Last week, Young Bristol were pleased to be in attendance at World Youth Clubs Leadership Institute 2024 in Atlanta, alongside some other great youth organisations from NABGC, Puerto Rico, Mexico, Canada, Liberia and Georgia as well as states across USA!

During the first few days at World Youth Clubs Leadership Institute, attendees were given the opportunity to explore the facilities on offer for young people across Atlanta! Our team were also able to meet and connect with individuals from across the globe, who shared their experiences of youth work from different countries!

Later in the week, World Youth Clubs Leadership Institute delegates and 14 other nations were recognised at the Boys & Girls Club of America's 118th Annual Conference! It was amazing to connect with youth working peers to explore strategies and share insights. Later in the conference, we heard from some of Atlanta's alumni, including singer-songwriter Usher, who had previously attended youth clubs in Atlanta as a teenager.

We would like to thank World Youth Clubs for hosting another great conference this year. Young Bristol representatives enjoyed their time in Atlanta and have brought all their learning and growth back to Bristol, ready to apply and benefit our young people! We are excited to hopefully attend next years conference.

Young people visit Glastonbury Festival!

This month, we were pleased to take a number of young people who attend our Community Youth Clubs and Outdoor Employment Programme to visit Glastonbury Festivals site!

We are pleased to be partnered with Glastonbury Festival this year, with a number of our trainees attending the Outdoor Employment Programme volunteering at the festival!

Last week, Glastonbury invited a number of our young people to join them on the festivals site! Young people received a full site tour and were able to see behind the scenes as well as the iconic stages being built!

After an amazing tour of the site, the group then went on to paint bins that are planned to be used across the site! Young people and staff got stuck in and painted some incredible and creative designs.

I knew bin painting would get the young ones really engaged but I was also pleasantly surprised to see how much the older trainees and enjoyed getting stuck in. It was really great to hear the comments on the coach home about how much they really enjoyed the day!

We would like to extend a huge thank you to Glastonbury Festival for inviting our young people to leave their mark at this years festival. We hope to continue working together and hope to get involved with future activities on offer!

Outdoor Employment Programme take part in Super Sliders event!

Over the weekend, young people from our Outdoor Employment Programme took part in the Super Sliders Bronze and Silver programmes!

What a great way for our Outdoor Employment Programme to start their weekend! A small group of our trainees travelled to the University of Bath's Training Village, where they took part in the Super Sliders Bronze and Silver programme. The team from Super Sliders had prepared a day full of activities for young people to get involved with and enjoy!

The programme started off with some "off-track" activities, where the group talked to Tabitha Stoecker and Patrick Atkin from Britain's Olympic Bobsleigh team! During this workshop, the group learnt about different bobsleigh equipment and were taught about a range of bobsleigh techniques!

The workshop continued onto some "on-track" activities, where the group put their learning into practice by using the bobsleigh equipment on the track. Young people all had the opportunity to push themselves down the track and improve their bobsleigh technique!

It was great to see our group of trainees try out new sports and push themselves out of their comfort zone! A huge thank you to Super Sliders for inviting us along to their most recent programme! We look forward to taking part in the next one soon!
