On Wednesday 9th August 2017 the youth club took part in the London Youth’s inaugural Inclusion Festival at the Salmon Youth Centre. Not only were we invited to attend and for our inclusive youth group to participate in activities throughout the day but we are proud to say the 2 member of our youth management team supported by our service manager were invited to deliver sessions at the event!
They did a fantastic job of hosting the Youth Action session which encouraged young people to pitch for £50 towards an activity that would benefit their youth clubs. This was the first time our YMT members have hosted sessions with their peers and they did a brilliant job.
All of the youth groups came up with fantastic ideas ranging from fundraising events to sports sessions. The fantastic news is that all groups (including Rathbone!) were successful in securing the funding for their youth club ideas.
It was a fun packed day that enabled youth a diverse mix of young people and youth groups to come together, learn new skills and build new friendships. A huge well don’t to London Youth for facilitating such a great event and allowing Rathbone to be a part of it!
Here’s a link to a short film of the event created by the fantastic team at WAC Arts!
