Come And Join The Club!
Welcome to the website of the Pennywell Youth Project!
Pennywell Youth Project is a well established voluntary organisation which was founded in the late 1980’s and is very much a neighbourhood based organisation. It now has its own purpose built centre in the middle of the estate. PYP’s building and facilities offer a safe environment where young people can learn new skills, get involved in developing services and enjoy themselves. Throughout the day it hosts drop-in sessions and activities as well as educational programmes. Its evening and weekend provision offer young people somewhere to meet, a curriculum based a programme, and an opportunity to take part in structured activities if they wish to or simply, “chill out” with friends with access to trained workers and resources if they need them. Especially important are the evening sessions which aim to offer an alternative for young people rather than congregating on the streets where they can become vulnerable to potential drinking, drug use, anti-social behaviour and criminal activities.
