WE need you !!
Later in August we will be starting up a Youth Group in Bodmin. This will be aimed at mainly 13 -18 year olds and will be unlike anything that is available in the region so far.
Its main aims are to help the youth in our community shine. To identify and produce projects and events run by the youth and for the wider community.
We believe that there are some brilliant, talented young people in our town, some know this and some talents are more hidden. We hope to bring them out into the spotlight and help them shine.
We will be working with local companies, the local community and people of all ages. The projects will be diverse and entertaining, some serious and beneficial and some just for fun.
So.. What do we need ??
Well, for a start, we need young people who want to engage in something positive, to improve life skills and to gain better employment chances for the future.
We do have the potential to start off with some projects to work on and to manage. I assure you, these are great fun, full of learning and a brilliant way to start this group going.
That`s not all though...
We are also looking for a little help for you...
Yes you sat in your chair reading this... We need a couple of adults to help out. This would be mainly 1 night a week when you can spare, maybe help on the projects to guide the youth. If you want a more involved role then that could possibly be sorted.
What we are looking for is someone just like you. You dont need experience, you don`t need to be DBS checked as we can sort this for you and you don`t need to be qualified. If you can juggle it would be a bonus.
We have been lucky enough to find a little funding to help us start a new project. The funding has come through UNLTD and its aimed at start up project to help get things off the ground. It will cover the rents required, insurance, small equipment and a few other things. Like many pots of funding, salary is sadly missing again but it is something we are working towards.
