We are really pleased to work in partnership with local schools to provide quality youth support work within educational settings; including one-off workshops, term-long projects, mentoring programmes, awards, and can provide daily support and after school activities.
Following a successful pilot, in September 2023 we start a monthly after-school group for adopted young people in Cathedral School in Bristol, working collaboratively with Adoption West.
In 2023 we ran a weekly 'Keeping Safe' programme in Patchway Community School with young women at risk of sexual exploitation.
In 2022 we ran a series of 6 knife crime workshops in Orchard School Bristol.
From 2018-19 we supported 3 local schools around the ‘Broken Weeks’ targeting young people with attendance issues; we ran a term-long project with groups of students called ‘You Matter’ exploring young people’s relationship to valuing education, as well as enjoying some off-site activities!
We have previously provided Young Carers support within Orchard School Bristol. We have also worked in the past with a special school for 2 years providing Relationships & Sex Education.
We provided Anti-Bullying workshops during Anti-Bullying Week across 4 schools with 300+ students in 2015! Let us know if you’d like us to come and work with your school to deliver class-based workshops around Anti-bullying or other PSHE topics! This included making a video which we can share with you!
If you are a school or formal education provider, please let us know if you have an idea for how we can work closely with you to provide wider accredited outcomes for your students!
We have found that informal education and youth work principles can be really successful working in partnership with schools, and if you have an idea for a project you’d like to work with us on, please get in touch!
