WHAT WE DO
A YPP volunteer is whatever the young person needs them to be: a teammate, a teacher, or a friend. We run confidence-building and skills-based exercises that focus on creativity, leadership and teamwork. The project itself takes place during the Easter term (January-March): it comprises six weekly school sessions, in which we visit the pupils at their schools, and then culminates in the Residential at the Van Mildert campus, in which the pupils stay at the college for four days. Some of the exercises we do on the Residential include a Dragon's Den team task, mock interviews and a trip to an outdoors activity centre.
