Himmat Youth Centre

The Himmat Youth Club continues apace, now opening on Tuesdays and Thursdays and Saturdays (and even more often when Champions League Football is on!).

Average attendance has increased substantially and now is around 30 per session and growing, with many new members having joined.

Young people are able to take part in formal and informal activities such as pool, table tennis, ICT as well one-to-one support around CV building, Jobsearch, and Personal Social Development issues. A number of 'older' young people are now returning to the Youth Club as volunteers (aka 'C4'!) and their contribution has been most valuable, especially on their knowledge of Champions League Football!

 

A special mention for the Street Wardens, Park Initiative and Neighbourhood Policing Team for their support on a number of occasions.

Saturday Club
The Saturday Club continues to offer a range of activities for up to 80 young people every Saturday in Halifax.

Homework Drop In
Homework Drop-In has been successfully running for the past 10 years. The scheme runs two nights a week on Monday and Wednesday between 6 and 8pm. Its aim is to help and improve the numeracy and literacy attainment of young people at school. The success of the project can be substantiated through the continuous support of the local schools and increased attendance of young people.

Friday Activities

The Friday Activities provides a warm and safe environment for girls aged 6-18 and primary school boys. The older girls have been encouraged to bring their younger brothers along. The Friday Activities night allows the young people to have access to the Youth Centre facilities where they are encouraged to socialise with one another. The highlight of this year has been the young people being involved in photography workshops where they have been given the chance to model and take pictures of all the people taking part in the workshops. The attendance has been really high and this shows the success of this evening.

Summer K2 Scheme
The K2 Summer Scheme identifies and targets those pupils in Year 5 approaching Year 6, who are predicted to not attain a Level 4 at the end of Key Stage 2. This year 7 primary schools were contacted and 66 pupils were allocated places on the scheme.

The pupils went through intensive Numeracy and Literacy training during their summer break. The sessions included doing multiplication grids where each pupil's time was recorded. It was observed that there was a dramatic improvement in performance.

Not in Education/Employment (NEET)
The NEET Project, funded by West Yorkshire Connexions Service, is into its 3rd year and going strong. The programme identifies and targets young people between the ages of 16 and 19 years and who are disengaged from mainstream provision or services. Sadat Wahid, the NEET PA, continues to serve the needs of this cohort through detached and outreach provision to locate and re-engage these young people.
