    New LGBT+ Champions fly the (rainbow) flag for North Yorkshire Youth!

    Youth Development Workers Vicki, Ian and Panda form the new team bringing LGBT+ rights to the heart of North Yorkshire Youth! The roles will ensure information is shared across the whole of the team, that North Yorkshire Youth is represented at LGBT+ events and that it can feed into and contribute to multi agencies meetings. Keeping up to date with current issues, challenges, best practice and regulatory changes, Vicki, Ian and Panda will act as resources for other team members and be able to provide information and signposting when needed.

    Working with NYCC and Barnardos Prouder Communities, the team have already fed into some consultation work around safer spaces for LGBT+ young people, a Heritage Lottery bid and the Stonewall Education Equality Index. Along with that, Ian recently attended the Yorkshire and Humberside LGBT+ Young People’s Event in York and Vicki took part in Harrogate Pride!

    Youth Club Promotion Pays Off!

    A Youth Club in Richmondshire has gained 22 new member in one session! Catterick Village Youth Project has been running successful for the past 3 year, as a member club of NYY and funding from Catterick Village Parish Council. In recent months, the club has gone through a transitional period with a change in staffing, dates and time and the need to relaunch the project to re-engage with local young people. To boost numbers, Senior Youth Worker, Edwina Anderson went into the local primary school to promote the club, given young people in Years 5 and 6, two free passes to come along to the project to give it a go with their friends. During Tuesday evening’s session, young people enjoyed taking part in football, rounders, outdoor games, wii, ping-pong, pool, an arts and new ideas workshop, with free drinks and snacks.

    Ages Together Bedale Group’s Grand Day Out

    North Yorkshire Youth is working under the umbrella of Ex-Forces Support North Yorkshire to bring together Ex- service men and women and local young people to tell each other’s stories…

    Ages Together is an Intergenerational Group made up of Students from Bedale School and Ex- Forces Veterans whose home is ‘The Millings’ in Bedale. North

    On Tuesday 10th April, in the pouring rain, a number of our merry group went for a guided tour of the Green Howard’s Regimental Museum in Richmond.

    Hosted brilliantly and enthusiastically by Carl; we were allowed to handle artefacts from WW1, dazzled by the medal room and taught some very interesting language facts that no-one had known before… needless to say we don’t do as much ‘chatting’ as we had done before!!

    We took lots of photos and got some inspiration for our exhibition; which will be held on Armed Forces Day (Saturday 30th June) at Bedale Hall and we are hoping that the museum join forces with us on that one!

    The Ages Together Bedale Group has been meeting and creating stories for a few months now and it has proved a wonderful experience for all involved; we would love to invite anyone that may be interested to our exhibition to see the culmination of our work together!

    Ignite

    Bring the past alive! North Yorkshire Youth is proud to be invoved in a new iniatiative by the Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF). called Kick the Dust A succesful bid to HLF by IVE, based in Leeds, called IGNITE has brought six partners together from across the region to give young people the chance to try something 'old'. The aim of the project is to give young people the opportunity to try something for the first time. It might be building a wall, making a spindle or even a bit of wood carving. All done in the traditional way. Expert tuition and add into the mix the outdoors will create a perfect way for young people to explore their past in a fun and interactive way. 

    The project also wants feedback so the sessions will include time to let us know what they thought of it. 

    • Was it fun? 
    • Do you want to try something else? 
    • How might we get your friends here to try it? 

    All of which will then help shape the project going forward.

    It is hoped that through these taster sessions and the feeedback provide we can continue the work with a longer term grant from the Hertiage Lottery.
