Opportunities Programme

We are currently seeking funding to deliver our Opportunities Programme for 60 young people per year, for 3 years. The aim of the Enjoy and Achieve Programme is to enable the young people to have opportunities to enjoy recreation and develop positive new skills and hobbies. These activities will help them to build friendships and develop creativity, as well as providing a healthy outlet for self-expression and stress relief. This work is one of the most important that Caxton offers, as its activities are those that attract young people to join the Youth Club, and therefore enable the delivery of the other three programmes.

As part of this programme Caxton Youth Organisation provides:

Art Project at the Youth Club once a week.

The young people can:

  • create pieces of art work
  • use a number of different materials and artistic mediums to create a piece of work
  • use a sewing machine
  • use a computer
  • use creative software e.g. photoshop to create art work

Music project at the Youth Club twice a week.

The young people can:

  • join in with others to create music
  • recognise three instruments by sound
  • make own judgements and express personal opinions on what they have heard

Sports project: (including football, basketball, tennis and fencing) 38 days a year at residential base Midge Island, Surrey and fencing on wednesdays at the Youth Club. 

The young people can:

  • know the importance of exercise
  • work as part of a team
  • make strategic decisions
  • learn how to be physically and emotionally healthy

 

Digital Media project coming soon!

    Caxton Youth Organisation also runs the Jack Petchey Achievement Award. The bronze reward awards three young people every year for their contribution to the organisation from volunteering to being an excellent role model.
