REACH ACROSS 2015

NEW FRIENDS, NEW SKILLS, NEW OPPORTUNITIES

 

Local cross-community youth group R.E.A.C.H Across are currently recruiting 150 young people (14 – 17yrs old), from throughout the W.E.L.B area, for 5 residential activity weekends during March and April. The 2015 residentials will take place in Tobermore and Portrush and activities will include outdoor laser quest, ice-skating and adventure courses. The cost for a residential is £30 and this covers accommodation, food, activities and transport.

 

After the residential weekends, members can take part in a range of activities, such as guitar skills, drama and dance, DJ skills, basic first aid, canoeing, catering skills etc. The project also offers day trips to M & D’s theme park in Scotland and educational trips to Crumlin Road Gaol, Stormont and Kilmainham Gaol.

 

In the Summer, R.E.A.C.H Across hope to organise international youth projects with groups of young people from Czech Republic, Italy and Cyprus. There will also be 2 outdoor activity camps and a Summer Schemes.

 

Training courses planned for 2015 include Virtual Parenting, CV & Interview Skills, COOK IT, Internet Safety, Drugs & Alcohol Awareness, Emergency Life Skills etc. Activities will include bodyzorbing, landrover driving, banana boat, white water tubing, indoor caving and snowboarding.

 

Members can also attend weekly group meetings, some of which will be held in Strabane, Omagh and Enniskillen and join our Youth Committee, which plans new activities and helps with fundraising.

 

The principal aim of the residentials will be to allow young people from a wide area to make new friends and to provide opportunities to gain new social skills and qualifications. Many lifelong friendships have been established through REACH Across and we would welcome applications from throughout the North-West region.
