The HeadStart Summer programme is up and running across HeadStart's four target areas. Here is a quick taste of two activities that were happening on a single day, Saturday 29th July!

Aspiring Future C.I.C. Girls Youth Club (Blakenhall)

Aspiring Future's Girls Youth club, one of the 'Place To Go' activities in the summer programme, is enabling girls aged 10-16 to stretch their creative juices, learn new skills and make new friends. The Drop-In Youth Club runs every Saturday from 22nd July until 23rd September, 12pm until 3pm. The youth club also offers guidance and support via 1-1 sessions.

The Girls Youth Club is also running 'I Am Beautiful' Hair and Beauty sessions every Wednesday, Eat Your Art Out art sessions every Thursday and Like Mother, Like Daughter evening meet-ups looking at the relationships between women and young girls. For full details and a flyer, visit the Summer Programme page for the All Saints, Blakenhall, Parkfields and Ettingshall area at http://www.headstartonline.co.uk/summer2017area-d. Don't miss out if you, or a family member, are a 10-16 year old girl living in the area.

Here are some photos from the youth club last Saturday:

Big Venture Community Fun Day (Scotlands)

It is great that activities like this are being run for young people, giving them the opportunity to do something during the holidays that is really positive.

To launch their HeadStart summer programme, the Big Venture Centre hosted a community fun day on Saturday. A number of exciting activities for young people were available including free bouncy castles, a disco and giant mascot friends. Local community groups shared information about their services from a wide range of stands, and Kate Clarke, HeadStart Community Coordinator for the Low Hill, Scotlands and Bushbury South area, discussed HeadStart and local provision with visitors to our stand. The feedback she received was really valuable; many thanks to everyone who dropped by to chat with her!

The Big Venture Centre used the event to launch their summer programme, which includes RML Rock SchoolRevolution Dance Academy and Zumba classes. For full details of their programme and a flyer, go to http://www.headstartonline.co.uk/summer2017area-a. Don't miss out if you, or a family member, are a 10-16 year old living in the area.

Many thanks to the Big Venture Centre for organising such a great afternoon in support of HeadStart.
