Young Bristol are delighted to announce they have been fortunate in receiving funding from the Neighbourhood Partnerships Transformers Grants. Two of our membership youth clubs have been given the green light to run the following projects:
St Silas a.k.a BS14 Youth Club, Stockwood – SIGN WRITING
The Sign Writing project will allow the club members to learn new techniques in printing & typography, as well as branding & marketing the club. They will discuss ideas about getting the club better known in the community and how to make it inviting for new members. This has the potential to lead into new partnership projects within the community and to encourage more young people to participate in the club nights. The final signage will be installed on the main road to help people identify the location on the youth club.
Ashton Vale club for Young People, Ashton Vale – CREATIVE ENTERPRISE
The Creative Enterprise project will allow young people to harness their personal, creative and business skills to have a better understanding of business and the part it plays in our day to day lives. The club members will learn a variety of creative and craft techniques to create products that they could sell to others as gifts. The creative sessions will involve processes that they are unlikely to explore within the school curriculum, including T-Shirt Screen Printing, Jewellery Making and Darkroom Photography.
Many thanks to The Neighbourhood Partnerships and the Avon & Somerset Police Community Trust for enabling these exciting projects to take place.
