Onside Youth Zones are looking to develop further plans for the new Youth Zone with Croydon's young people who will help them shape the new Youth Zone iln Croydon, in what we call the Young Peoples Development Group (YPDG). Click on the link below to more details.
Onside Youth Zones are currently working towards a weekend residential trip for young people from Barnet to the North West over the weekend 6-8 May. Leading up to this there will be 4 meetings on Tuesday evenings, between 6.30-8.00 at Bernard Weatherill House, Mint Walk, Croydon, CR0 1EA. On:
- Tuesday12 April
- Tuesday 19 April
- Tuesday 26 April
- Tuesday 3 May
The plan for these meetings is to give young people from different groups around the borough the chance to get to know each other better and think about how they can best make use of their time visiting Youth Zones in the North West. There should be around 25 places for young people. To keep the administration as simple as possible the model is for each project/organisation wishing to be a part of the YPDG is to put forward/select 2-6 young people from their organisation who will become part of the YPDG. These representative young people, certainly initially, within the process of establishing the YPDG, will be supported by a Youth Worker/Leader who knows them well from your group. So simply the hope is that 6-8 groups come together from within the borough with 2-6 young people and an accompanying member of staff, altogether making up the bigger group of 25ish.
