Torrington Youth Space Update – June 2021


"It's with great appreciation and thanks to the Trustees of Great Torrington Town & Lands that Youth Genesis is able to offer a range of life changing projects and activities for local young people. The funding will allow us to provide a series of activities at our Friday Night Youth Hub over the summer and autumn that will include sports and games as well as sessions around arts, crafts, music making, dance and drama. We will also be offering young people life skills around cooking, managing finances and gardening.

 The Friday Night Youth Hub, which takes place at Torrington Methodist Church and on the streets at various locations around town, is currently engaging just over 80 teenagers each week! Many of the young people Youth Genesis are supporting have struggled with their mental health following the Covid-19 pandemic etc.  Funding from Great Torrington Town & Lands Charity will help us to provide the right support as well as a dynamic range of positive activities.
