On Tuesday16 May, two YoMo staff members attended the YouthBank Scotland Coordinators meeting at HMP YOI Polmont. It was fantastic to discuss the national opportunities coming up for our volunteers involved in YouthBank and it was a pleasure to meet two of the boys who run the YouthBank within Polmont. Lots of exciting opportunities to follow from this wonderful meeting!

MEGA MAGICAL FUNDED FRIDAY TO SHARE!

 

We have the wonderful young folk from The Church of Nazarene's application which was for simple art supplies like pens, paper, books, glue etc. to have a weekly craft group.

Having this group allowed the young people involved to have a space to relax and calming activities available for them to just breathe- such a simple yet amazing project to have been funded by our Youth Bank!

WEH-HEY, FUNDED FRIDAY TIME!

This week, we'd like to share the amazing work from the Bridge To Further Education young people who decided to apply to our Youth Bank for a grant towards starting their own embroidery classes!

 

With the facilitation of a professional tutor, these guys were able to develop their skills enough to then feed back to their community by creating sensory blankets for children with additional support needs. Inspiring work guys, well done!
