The point of no return! Our youth activities continued to develop attracting hundreds of young people including much-needed homework clubs. We also put together holiday programmes to keep young people occupied when they were not at school. We started to focus on Youth Social Action projects getting young people to think about the community and the world they live in by volunteering. They helped organise events, took part in various campaigns and continued to develop our site including converting containers into a volunteer gym. Our young volunteers became more and more part of running our community space this led to the birth of our volunteer development, recognition and reward programme ‘SuperStars’.
We also began our partnership with Carr Manor Community School with the introduction of an off-site provision within our CATCH premises known as the Pupil Enhancement programme serving several local secondary schools. Learn more about this programme here.
We received an award for the ‘Best Place for Children and Young People in Leeds’.
