Youngsters set for community project event
9:00am Tuesday 7th August 2012 in Keighley
Keighley teenagers are being offered the chance to change their own lives while improving their communities.
They could take part in the Summer of a Lifetime project run by national volunteering and learning charity CSV.
People can experience new activities such as rock climbing, archery and raft building during two four-night residential trips.
They will work in teams to design community projects, then spend 30 hours each carrying them out throughout this month.
Summer of a Lifetime is free to 16 and 17-year-olds, and young people aged 18 to 25 who have a learning disability.
Inspirational athletes from the Dame Kelly Holmes’ Legacy Trust will mentor young people throughout the programme, which will end with a graduation ceremony.
Louise Allen, who is running the project, said: “This is an amazing experience and people who take part will gain so many skills and unforgettable experiences and will make life-long friends. This really is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity!”
Young people can sign up by calling Louise on (01274) 737266 or 07896 004381, or e-mailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
