New Youth Work partnership launches

LS-TEN have recently launched a new youth service project in South Leeds, working with organisations from across the city to form the Leeds Youth Alliance.

Our partners in the south are Barca, Re:establish, The Youth Association, DAZL, Hamara and The Getaway Girls. In the North East and West, Barca are the lead organisation with a variety of partners.

As part of the project, we are running a variety of outreach and detached sessions across Leeds as well as organising some youth group hubs that will run on a weekly basis. The first hub is based in LS-TEN and offers a social space for young people to spend Wednesday evenings doing a variety of activities including board games, pool and of course, skating. We are offering a safe space for young people to ask questions and engage in meaningful discussions with youth workers and peers.

Hamara are offering an opportunity to learn some valuable skills in the form of running a community café. Young people can learn to cook and sell food and dive into the world of business. This is a fun way to learn and eat some tasty food at the same time!

We’re teaming up with DAZL to put on weekly dance lessons in Middleton. Expressing ourselves through movement and having fun while exercising is what we’re all about. These sessions will be great for building confidence and exploring the way our bodies move. With a skatepark just outside the community centre, there’ll be lots of variety when the weather lets us play outside.

Look out for our pop up sessions across Holbeck, Beeston, Cottingley, Middleton and Halton. These will range from skate sessions to educational and developmental workshops.

All activities are completely free, with details available on or on our Facebook Page and Instagram. Contact for enquiries.
