Youth Starz Project

 

Youth Starz is a three year Big Lottery Funded project, aimed at children and young people aged 4-19 years old, enabling them to increase their life skills and be supported to actively run the project and gain other valuable competencies including communication, team work whilst improving their wellbeing. The project aims to reduce anti-social behaviour, increase school attendance and attainment towards raising aspirations and increasing the life chances of children struggling with often complex and chaotic lives.

 

Youth Starz offers bespoke support programmes for individuals and groups alongside a range of free positive activities targeted within Milton Keynes City and the Woughton areas.

Youth Starz Project activities include:

 

1:1 Support

A free 1:1 support package provided for 5-18 year olds delivered by Practitioners who are trained in association with the needs of the clients’ requirements.  All work is led and focused upon the needs of the client. The support provided is reviewed every 4 -6 weeks by the Practitioner, and they work with the young person in a solution focused approach to assist and tackle the barriers that currently exist within their life. The young person identifies which aspects of their current lifestyle they would like to work and improve upon.

 

Youth Clubs

These sessions are free for children and young people to access. Healthy snacks are provided to the children and young people. During these sessions we offer a wide range of activities including arts and crafts, sports and life skills sessions. This is a safe environment for children and young people to meet new people, gain new skills.

 

6 Week Nurture Groups

These sessions run in school settings. The sessions are 1 hour per week during the school day and run on a variety of topics including:

 

Self Esteem
