UITC launch Pilgrims Goalz Project
27 January 2015
United in the Community are launching their exciting Pilgrims Goalz project from 2nd February, thanks to funding from Children in Need. The project received £98,291 over 3 years, which has been used to create Pilgrims Goalz for young people at Focus One Youth Centre on Mill Road in Boston.
The main aim of the project is to deliver youth nights for 11 to 18 year olds to help increase physical activities outside of school time and to provide a safe place to socialise with their peers. The sessions will be ran every week from 6pm to 8pm on Monday, Thursday and Friday evenings and will cost just £1 a session.
“We previously held a youth night on Monday, but since receiving the funding from Children in Need we have been able to create Pilgrims Goalz, offering a safe environment for young people three nights a week at Focus One. Two of the youth nights will be focused on sports so they can get involved with various activities and games like football, basketball, cricket, netball and more,” says Lewis Wright, Inclusion Officer.
The other session will be focused on helping young people achieve life long skills such as reducing crime, drug and alcohol awareness, and sexual health. There will also be opportunities to obtain leadership qualifications and receive support to improve their education and skills, and to participate in fun workshops like DJ skills and arts & crafts.
United in the Community will also offer holiday clubs at the youth centre during school holidays and give young people the opportunity to partake in fun days to places like Alton Towers.
