A service in Market Weighton that gives young people an environment to learn, relax and meet with their friends outside school is changing.
Living Springs Ministries, based at The Life Centre, on High Street, has run a Youth Talking Point project since 2009.
Currently, it provides three nights a week activity sessions to young people. In a bid to provide improved and targeted age appropriate activities, the sessions will be restructured from tomorrow to meet specific needs of the different age groups.
First, they are going to separate the youths into two age groups, 10-13 and 14-16.Secondly, they will separate each day’s session as follows:
l Tuesdays session, 6pm -8.30pm, will be attended by young people aged 10-13 alone in two sessions. Session one: girls only – 6pm- 7.15pm. Session two: boys only - 7.15pm-8.30pm
l Weekends , Fridays and Saturdays, will be split into two mixed sessions: Session one: 6pm-7.30pm, youngsters aged 10-13 only. Session two: 7.45pm-9.30pm, 14-16-year-olds only.
