Not too long ago, Pathways 2 Progress was engaging young people around the area and giving them a new hang-out spot. They had a safe place to be and meet new people while being stimulated by new activities. The absence of the Drop-Ins were purely down to the need to give intensive support to the older young people who needed support in finding work, getting apprenticeships and genuinely developing themselves.
But now, P2P have found a way to do both. We’ve teamed up with our residential team, Progressive Youth Development Trust (PYDT) to facilitate the new look Drop-Ins. Thursday evening Drop-Ins are our male only Lads and Dads session, where boys and men come together in barber shop fashion to discuss male related issues, hang out, play table tennis and of course get their hair cut by our in house barber, all for free.
We still deliver the leadership My-I-Can sessions in the Blue Portacabin. Then on Fridays young people can engage in boxing, table tennis, Playstation, in-house cinema, pizza, trips and all round good fun.
This space is yours so feel free to come, tell a friend, get a haircut, eat pizza, have a good time and we all look forward to seeing you. The venue details and time can be found in the future events calendar.
