Our Y.O.L.O. project provides a mix of regular evening, and more intensive school holiday provision which runs in three areas of the city; The Meadows, St Ann’s and Bilborough. The project aims to engage young people in trying new activities and learning new skills as the premise is ‘You Only Live Once’, and through doing so aims to raise engagement and aspirations, and support each young person taking part to gain an accreditation to help recognise their achievements.
