Keeping Young People Engaged at CYP
Although we can not run our regular sessions for the time being, that still hasn’t stopped us from talking to our members and shaping our future plans on their voice. Last week there was a group call to get young people involved in the Good Growth Project. The Good Growth Fund is Mayor Sadiq Khan’s £70 million regeneration programme to support growth and community development in London. The group call was focused on the questionnaire provided by the Good Growth Fund and compiling answers related to those questions. It was interesting to get an insight into what the young people would like from any services as they transition into young adults. It was also great to hear what the young people disliked about the Cally area, from crimes to in-equal wealth distributions around certain areas. We hope the Good Growth Project not only takes their voices into consideration but also seriously.
As well as that, young people have been busy with our online daily challenges. Last weeks challenges included:
Monday – Baking an Oreo dessert
Tuesday – Fitness Challenge
Wednesday – Connect With The Sun
Thursday – Revamp An Old Jumper
Friday – Wipe It Down Challenge
