FYA youth led peer support groups are moving online and have already started!
Young people must register with us first and can do so by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or contacting Abbie M:07546324397.
Sessions take place via ZOOM and will always be facilitated by FYA / Camden peer mentoring programme staff.
THE HANGOUT – weekly group from 2:30pm for young people who identify as male aged 11-24 – as always this session is youth led, so the group will be deciding the activities they want to do virtually together.
Our weekly Girls Club runs on Tuesdays between 4-6pm and the activity and topics we do and discuss will continue to be led by the group members.
Our April timetable includes a live yoga session by an accredited DBS checked instructor between 4pm-5pm followed by a chat and games.
The group is open to anyone aged 11+ who identifies as female and will maintain its original focus of ‘sport and peer support’ to help young people stay active during this difficult time and give them a chance to explore the impact the situation is having on their emotional wellbeing.
THE CONNECT – weekly mixed, virtual group for any young person aged 11-18 who is struggling during this time and just wants a space to be able to chat through it with others.
This group will also be led by the members in terms of the activities and discussions they would like to do.
We are working with Coram and their young citizens project – they will be trained as Peer Mentors virtually while we are in lockdown! To find out more about the Young Citizens click here
Our project in partnership with Tavistock Relationships for young people whose parents / guardians are in conflict will also be moving virtually. Please contact email@example.com for any further information and updates on any of the above.
