The Youth Service Offer
What we do
St Helens Youth Service offers a three day per week youth offer. It is packed full of different things to do, from arts and sports to health and volunteering, and much more. Once you have taken part in one of the Youth Service's events, then ask what else you could take part in; we are always ready to help.
St .Helens Youth Service offers a broad spectrum of programmes and activities that have been specifically tailored to meet the needs and requirements of all 5-17 year olds from across the district, ranging from drama, music, sports, and volunteering opportunities.
All programmes and activities directly relate to the core St. Helens youth work principles and a curriculum framework, which has been created to support young people's development in citizenship, the arts and their personal and social development.
The universal work of the Youth Service offers a unique opportunity for young people to have the support and guidance they require to enable them to develop both on a social and personal level. This requires programmes that are person centred; involve active learning with educators and personal choice by building a common set of core values and a shared perception of vision and a sense of purpose.
Youth centres provide safe, welcoming environments, which provide the potential for young people to mix interests and skills appropriate to their development. St. Helens Youth Service has a small number of dedicated youth centres and accesses a wide range of community buildings such as libraries, leisure centres and community buildings.
For those young people currently not accessing provision, St Helens Youth Service operates an outreach and detached programme six nights a week across the borough.
