(COVID-19) update from Space*
We have taken the unfortunate decision to close our youth work sessions this week while we design our temporary offer for young people in our communities. We are working hard to make sure that we can still engage our regular users in all manner of exciting online sessions. We will also be reaching out to young people who receive individual support from us and agreeing the best way to ensure they don’t feel isolated. Stay Safe everyone.
Welcome to Tiverton Youth Centre!
Tiverton youth centre offers a safe & supportive social space for young people. We offer fun and informative activities every session – and each week has a packed programme with challenges, cooking & crafts for our young people to participate in.
Aside from all the fun, our youth workers offer group & 1-1 support, or advice on issues that affect young people; like relationships, alcohol and drug use, or support with peer pressure & general mental well-being.
We’re also one of the three Atlantic Youth Creative Hubs in Space*, with a creative session running every Tuesday! Our AY Creative sessions are part of our involvement in the 3 year international project to develop career sustaining skills, job opportunities and an innovative network of young creators… if you’re a fan of all-things tech, it’s for you!
Our Open Access Sessions
Monday’s 6:30 – 9PM
For years 8 & 9. Our Monday sessions offer a relaxed environment with access to the music room, tuck shop, sports, pool/table tennis and game consoles. Each week members have the chance to get involved in our planned programme, group/individual challenges and themed discussion around topics relevant to young people – like smoking, relationships or training.
Tuesday’s 6:30 – 9PM
Our ‘Atlantic Youth Creative Session’ is a session for those interested in all-things tech! It runs as part of our involvement in the AYCH EU Project to support young people – providing them with unique opportunities to develop career sustaining skills and access a network of support from experts to help ‘project-goers’ develop their ideas into real-life concepts…
Wednesday’s 6:00 – 8:00PM
A busy and fun session for Year 7’s and 8’s. This session boasts a range of really interesting activities, including talents shows, discos, karaoke, football, hockey, team/individual challenges (and art to name a few!) Each week has different activities to get involved in – just check our Instagram!
Thursday’s 6:30 – 9PM
Year 9+. Similar to Monday, Thursday sessions offer a wide range of activities – Thursday’s are even open to young people who have left school, up to the age of 18. This session has also been lucky enough to receive funding to make sure we can cook a hot meal for everyone each week. Our club members do the cooking and the whole centre can take advantage of amazing food!
Friday’s 5:30 – 7:30PM
We are usually at Westexe Recreation Ground, but we also visit Tiverton Town Centre and Amory Park to say a quick hello to people!
“The staff are excellent because they have to put up with a lot of noise and they put on excellent activities- I would give them a 5 star rating if they were a restaurant or something!”
“Youth workers give out a really fun and chilled out vibe which makes me want to talk to them.”
