There are plenty of opportunities for the young people we support to get involved with the social life of YMCA, with each group offering them the opportunity to develop personal skills and social interaction.
Creative Arts Project:
Creative Arts groups can include sessions music, poetry, creative writing, singing, song-writing and photography. Each month local professional groups come and lead our young people through the creative process.
This group teaches the basics of cooking and our young people receive one to one tuition as they learn to create simple, healthy and tasty recipes on a budget.
Sports Group is an opportunity for our young people to try different kinds of sports such as kayaking, climbing, basketball, badminton and swimming! We also have a football team which plays friendly fixtures against other 5 aside football teams in Exeter.
Chapel Space is a relaxed, informal drop-in session where those living with us have the opportunity to explore life and faith. The session offers intentional pastoral support to all young people, enabling them to process their personal circumstances through the lens of Christianity.
