Youthtown Youth Programmes

Youthtown provides leadership opportunities to our Youth Squads - young people who want to make a difference to the lives of other young people and have a positive impact in their community.

Many have come up the ranks within Youthtown’s programmes embracing the values, making excellent role models to inspire younger participants and welcome new members to Youthtown.

This close-knit group of 13-18 year olds are assisted by experienced Youth Coordinators to develop life skills for the real world that will unleash their inner leader.

Our Youth Coordinators are accredited to award the Duke of Edinburgh Hillary Award and other formal recognitions to those that take part in this structured set of activities.

Being part of a Youth Squad is not all work! Amongst running events and sharpening social skills there is still plenty of time for fun.

Youth Squads are unique to the community in which they are formed so that they can reflect the personality of the region that they represent. So when all squads get together at Camp, for extended leadership training, it’s a big occasion!

I so love the way the leaders and coordinators look after the kids. It is done with such understanding and maturity, that is worth more than gold for the kids and the parents.
