REAP Youth Development programmes, runs every Friday 6.30pm-8.30pm at The REAP Centre, Downham, BR1 5QW.
Many of our young people during the summer holidays have expressed they are bored without much to do and have found themselves getting tempted to get involved in anti-social behaviour.
In 2015, we received funding to run a summer scheme for 4 weeks from 2pm-7pm Monday to Friday, and had over 70 young people attend. We did activites such as music production, pool, table tennis, car machanic workshops, mentoring programmes, money management workshops and trips. Year 2016 we also recieved funding to provide summer scheme for 1 week and was able to take the youth away on trips to the countryside and water rafting. The young people said they enjoyed these activities and found it life changing and great having things to do during the days. Parents of the young people expressed that such as scheme enabled them to have peace of mind whilst they were at work as they were not able to afford childcare and needed to intrust their children to remain responsible.
REAP Youth Development has grown over the years and the self- development within the young people is remarkable. There is so much negativity within the media of young people and the management of REAP Youth Development Programme are very proud of the young people that attend and the progress they are making in their lives.
Please donate and continue to help us sow positive seeds into the community and watch our youth grow.
