For Young People

Solent Youth Action deliver a number of informal learning programmes for young people that incorporate youth trending issues such as relationships and sex, drugs and alcohol, healthy living, self-esteem, exploitation, online behaviour and raising aspirations.

Each programme offers young people an opportunity to engage in series of activities in a fun, engaging and informative way.

NGA-NBA.cdrREFRESH is a personal development programme for young people aged 11- 19. The programme is delivered to all boy or all girl groups, allowing the different genders to ask questions and explore topics that they may feel embarrassed about mentioning in a mixed gender group. Activities are workshop based, fun and engaging, and are tailored to meet the needs of the specific young people who attend and the challenges that they face.


Each group can have between 6 and 15 young people in it, all similar in age. It can be delivered within your School/College/Youth Club to fit around classes, curriculum and activities.

Each session is tailored to the age of the group, ensuring all content is age appropriate. There is also the opportunity for your staff to suggest content for the sessions if specific youth related issues are apparent within the School/College/Youth Club.
