In Royston Primary School we are fortunate to work with Royston Youth Action to support our children and give them additional learning experiences. Although they work mainly with teenagers, they also run a number of community after school clubs for primary school children and have a number of different groups aimed at primary school children. In school we have been fortunate enough to have them run activities such as kayaking, rock climbing, Bikeability training, transition events and even outdoor residentials!
“Royston Youth Action is passionate about helping people to realise the innate potential that exists within them. We are firm in the belief that this is an educational process based on dialogue and relationships. All too often society undervalue this generic relationship based approach.
The needs in the community and among young people within the Royston area are numerous. It is also recognised that individual needs change over time as the individual progresses. The organisation believes that the best way to respond to these needs is through an ongoing process of developing relationships.
The organisation is committed to enabling the people of Royston to identify and meet their own needs through dialogue and self-help. As a community organisation, this is the local response to the needs of the community and of young people. The vision is to have a strong organisation that builds on its successes, supporting the development of individuals through a process of empowerment underpinned by education and experience. Our strength is in the community, in the deepening understanding and effectiveness of our management committee, our volunteers, our staff and our young people. “
