Due to the success of Team YP over the last 12 months Southend YMCA has secured funding to deliver an extension to the project - 'Team YP Challenge'.
Team YP currently delivers sporting activities to disadvantaged young people in Southend. Challenge will provide 12 young people with the opportunities to participate in an exciting range of enjoyable, physical, creative and recreational activities which offers parents and carers a short break.
Team YPC draws it's inspiration from the 2012 Olympics and decathlon inspired, multi-themed activities.
Team YPC is a leisure project which harnesses and develops:
• the leadership potential of participants who are actively involved in developing and delivering the project
• the skill base of participants (both individually and as team members) providing a foundation for further achievement
• self-esteem and confidence
We are also pleased to be using qualified and highly experienced sessional experts including a former BBC presenter, profesional chef, DJ and fitness instructors.Find out more about Team YP here.
