Prison No Way

Prison No Way is an interactive, practical and varied programme for young people who are at risk of entering criminality, being involved in it, as well as at risk of youth violence. It is delivered across ten sessions in partnership with Criminal Justice Service agencies.

Year 6 Transition Activity Booklet

Essex Youth Service are pleased to be launching a free fun and interactive Year 6 Transition Activity Booklet.

Transitioning from primary to secondary school is a significant change for young people so the aim of the booklet is for those transitioning from Year 6 – 7 to work through fun and hands on activities to help prepare them for life in Year 7. These activities will support the young person with their journey into secondary school by focusing on topics such as Coping with Change, Getting Organised and Making Good Choices.

Whilst working through the activities they will earn points which can then be used to claim their award certificate at the end.

If you want your child to take part, please email us and one of the team will issue you with your starter pack.

Virtual DofE

Do you know a 13-24 year old who wants to do something fun and meaningful? They can sign-up to our virtual Duke of Edinburgh's Award with all sessions being carried out online!
