Youth Work

Our youth work welcomes anyone aged between 10 and 19 years (up to 25 years old with Special Educational Needs); some of these young people can be vulnerable and/or have additional needs. We provide safe environments where every young person’s view is considered. We operate in 8 youth clubs, 4 Young Carers groups, project & outreach work across Mendip & South Somerset; including Coleford, Frome, Glastonbury, Shepton Mallet, Street and Yeovil.

Our work

We ensure continued engagement and participation in planned programmes of positive activities and issue-based work; relevant to the needs and development of individuals and peer groups. All of our activities are designed to develop social and life skills, increase confidence and resilience, and help young people move away from any harmful behaviours.

Our Youth Club programmes are delivered through non-formal educational activities which combine enjoyment, challenge and learning. We want young people to develop hobbies that will last a lifetime, enrich their lives and the lives of others. We run inclusive sessions where everyone is welcome.

Our Goal

YMCA Brunel Group is a charitable organization providing a service and activities for young people and their communities.

Our aim is for all our young people to have ambition for themselves, to be confident individuals, effective contributors, successful learners and responsible citizens; and to be nurtured, safe, active, healthy, achieving, included, respected and responsible in their communities. We want to encourage young people to connect creatively with their community and learn how to become better neighbours through that connection.
