Welcome to YMCA Exeter Youth Services!
We want all of our children and teenagers to become the best possible version of themselves so we equip them with the tools they need to thrive in a fun, engaging and relevant way.
Each of our youth clubs offer a safe and creative place where we can have informative conversations about mental health, drugs & alcohol, sex, crime, racism, money, employment, education, social media, and world issues… to name a few! There are also opportunities for young people to have one to ones with our team if they want to talk about things they are struggling with.
The youth clubs are on at the following times:
Tuesdays @ Whimple
School Hill, Whimple, Exeter EX5 2TS
In partnership with Whimple Church, we run a youth club for Key Stage Two children every other Tuesday at the Victory Hall. Each of the sessions is themed and run between 5.15 pm – 6.30pm, including games, activities and crafts.
