Y24-24 Step Ethos
The core of our service often incorporates a personalised 24-step programme of continuous support, which includes an ongoing phase of assessment, monitoring, target setting and review.
The 24 step - programme:
- Health & Lifestyle
- Strengthening Communities
- Social & Emotional Development
Health & lifestyleYouth 24 believe a healthy lifestyle should be a way of life. Once young people develop an understanding of how to build a healthy routine they will begin to see, feel, and experience the benefits of a healthy living.
There are significant and long lasting benefits in improving the way young people live, to ensure that they live a healthy and long life. Youth 24 have developed a two-part programme that will see the young people they work with benefit from an active lifestyle and healthy nutritional diet.
Youth 24’s objective is to encourage as many young people as possible that wish to revise their dietary habits to do so with the correct information and practical guidance about ways to eat and cook simple healthy meals. This is in conjunction with encouraging young people to become more active by combining modifications to their dietary habits alongside active participation in physical activity.
Strengthening CommunitiesYouth 24 engages with a diverse group of young people, we believe it is equally important to support and advise those facing challenges and possible barriers to learning and or employment, as it is to support those trying to achieve excellence. We believe that all young people deserve equal life opportunities.
Y24 works in partnership with a number of voluntary agencies as well as corporate companies, we ensure that all the young people we work with have access to free legal advice, whether that is by way of Legal Workshops or the need to get Legal representation.
At Y24 we are able to offer a wide range of employment opportunities, ranging from Football Coaching, refereeing, mentoring to, working in a professional sector.
Y24 continues to extend our community links and strive to encourage our young people to be active citizens within their own communities.
Social & Emotional DevelopmentThe holistic development of young people is at the forefront of every intervention we offer at Y24. With this in mind, our Social and Emotional Development programme focuses extensively on increasing young peoples capacity to develop through safe and positive experiences whilst promoting the approaches of SEAL used in schools.
At Y24 we understand that adolescence is often a turbulent period filled with uncertainties for many young people. We share a common belief that young people who have strong social and emotional skills perform better in education, sustain more positive relationships with peers and adults, and have more positive emotional adjustment.
We believe nurturing these skills enable young people to develop the ability to manage the social and emotional complexities of life as they transition into adulthood.
