i Youth Zone Visit

Last week I got the opportunity to pop into our local iYouth Zone on Nicolson Street and meet with both the youth workers and young people that use the centre. I got to see the facilities on offer to young people and hear about the range of information that is available.

The Youth Zone is a great space for young people to meet friends, access computers and the internet, make arts and crafts, participate in team activities, play games and have access to trained youth work staff.

I learned about the Youth Zone’s new initiative #YouthWorkChangesLives and I was extremely encouraged to find out that young people that have used the centre have returned to work there as trained youth workers.
