Youth Works CIC
Youth Works Community Interest Company delivers education, counselling and support services to the young people of Northamptonshire.
They provide an alternative education provision for young people at risk of exclusion from mainstream education, or those young people struggling to engage with mainstream education to improve educational attainment. They provide a curriculum that is 'hands-on' and engages young people in activities that they are interested in. They then use these activities to bring in functional skills such as maths and English to improve young people's chances at gaining employment or going into training.
They provide counselling and a range of other support services and targeted interventions to address mental health issues and improve emotional and social wellbeing.
They provide a range of clubs, activities and projects to improve social wellbeing and skill development. They also provide a range of community events, activities and projects to raise public awareness of the issues affecting young people and marginalised/minority groups such as the LGBTQ community, enabling them to participate in the wider community.
Their vision is to grow community based wraparound education, advocacy, support and recreation from vibrant, accessible venues that have local young people and their families at the core.
