Young Bristol is a vibrant citywide youth organisation that works in partnership with a range of agencies throughout the greater Bristol area. We offer opportunities for young people to develop their skills, achieve goals and build confidence. Young Bristol responds creatively to the needs of all young people by involving them in a variety of projects and activities. These programmes are delivered through 25 local youth clubs, our outdoor activity centre and special citywide projects
Somewhere to go - a safe, welcoming space at one of our 25 youth clubs across Bristol. Something to do - positive activities, including sport, creative activities and outdoor pursuits, that engage and challenge young people, promote healthy life styles, so offering the opportunity to grow, develop and learn about themselves, their peers and the world around them. Someone to talk to - positive relationships with adults and peers that give young people a sense of belonging and acceptance.
During 2010 a record 6,000 young people have enjoyed and benefited from more than 900 activity sessions at our Pooles Wharf outdoor activity centre Our volunteer team has placed 1800 young people into a volunteer opportunity and helped to create 4500 volunteering opportunities.
