West Rhyl Young People's Project (WRYPP) - where young people grow, achieve change & thrive.
Working across North Wales with young people marginalised by social exclusion, inequality and poverty, we broaden horizons, challenge, educate and nurture confidence. We deliver drop-in, detached & centre-based youth work; alternative learning programmes (for those at risk of school exclusion); intensive, short-term & tailored support for young people & their families to avert crisis; and specialist provision for lesbian, gay, bisexual & trans young people, their families & friends.Why the community needs us
WRYPP provides spaces and opportunities for young people to learn, grow and feel valued and supported. Our work reduces barriers to engagement and promotes positive transition into adulthood by offering information, support and a range of informal learning opportunities. These increase skills and knowledge and nurture aspirations along with emotional and practical resilience. We support young people to confidently navigate through life, overcome challenges and thrive.Our impact on the community
In a typical year, we deliver support to approximately 500 young people and training to a further 2500. Our LGBT+ training programmes create safer school environments, raise awareness, challenge homo/transphobia & embed best practice. Our alternative education programmes prevent up to 60 young people from falling out of the school system; with, last year, 20 gaining level 2 accreditation equivalent to 2 GCSEs. Our youth & family work promotes resilience, builds on strengths and averts crisis.
We are seeking volunteers to help us with our backroom support as well as youth workers to assist us in delivering our evening youth groups.
