Having fun on YMCA Training Great Yarmouth’s Summer Programme



















YMCA Training Great Yarmouth is thrilled with the success of its summer programme with 22 new learners joining them in the activities so far!

Since starting on the programme recently, the young learners have experienced numerous activities.

A sports and fitness session was run in partnership with Great Yarmouth and Waveney NHS PCT, all of the learners who took part really enjoyed the session and were literally buzzing when they returned.

A sexual health session was run in partnership with GFS Platform Great Yarmouth. This was delivered by a qualified sexual health trainer and a peer educator, along with the support of staff from YMCA Training. This was both fun and informative.

A cookery session was run by Claire Overton, co-ordinator at YMCA Training Great Yarmouth. During this session the learners experienced smoothie making and cooked a lasagne.

The young learners have also taken part in activities which help them build on their teamwork and communication skills, including The Mummy activity, and a paper tower building activity

On 26th July they had Well-Being Day, where all elements of well-being were looked at and enjoyed, with an afternoon of crafts to enhance the learner's well-being including, salt dough modelling, abstract painting and also sporting games on the Wii. All of the learners left feeling great and interested in pursuing further well-being activities.

To date, 20 of the learners have said they will progress through to either college, or onto YMCA Training's Foundation Learning programme.
