Back on Track

Back on Track is a project that brought young people from two secondary schools, where young people have disengaged from education following covid-19 or who find themselves not in education, training or employment. This group was referral only from our two pilot schools; Inverclyde Academy & Port Glasgow High School. The groups took part in issue based topics, learning life skills, cooking, team building activities, volunteering and outdoor education.

Detached Youth Work

Young people like to meet and socialize in their own spaces.  Detached youth workers approach young people out on the streets to give advice and see if there is anything we can help with.  Detached youth workers can help with things like health and safety advice, handing out bottled water, sign posting young people to other services, and keeping young people informed of the other activities on offer.  We don't go out looking to move young people on from where they want to be, just helping to make sure that people are healthy, happy, and that they won't draw the attention of the police or community wardens.  Sometimes the detached youth workers even run large events like the summer Beach Party which had a barbeque and beach games.
