Medway Youth Free Online Sessions
Medway Youth are offering young people ages 11-18 (up to 25 if SEN) free online sessions during the week. The sessions have fantastic content ranging from quizzes, creating music online, book clubs, activities, arts and crafts, Online safety & digital skills, Healthy relationships and much more.
If the young person already attends the local youth clubs across Medway, they are likely to be familiar with the staff running these, and other young people. It might be a nice way of them interacting with their peers during lockdown, or making new friendships they could develop after.
The sessions run Monday- Friday at intervals throughout the day.
