Youth Clubs
 
Youth clubs provide a fun, safe and accessible environment for young people to socialise and experience new challenges.
 
At club you will be given the opportunity to just chill out with your mates or to take part in sport, art and music projects.  Many young people attending clubs get involved in organising charity events, do projects that improve their communities, join youth forums, organise day trips, take part in competitions and participate in residentials locally, across the UK and abroad. 

Unlike School it's your choice to come to Youth Club and you have a say in how it is run and what activities go on!

We run Youth Clubs in the evenings for anyone who wants to turn up.  So if you’re aged between 11 and 25 and want somewhere to go in the evenings, check out what’s on offer at your local youth club.  Youth Clubs are located...

Giant Cockroach encounter in Sandfields Youth Club.............
The members of Sandfields Youth Club had hands on experience with some very exotic creatures.
There was several species of snakes, lizards, insects, amphibians and spiders just to mention a few. Animal Zone kindly brought the animals for the young people to meet and learn about their fascinating lives and life styles.

Animal Zone UK provides a rescue service for any unwanted exotic pet, they also run an adoption service, where rescued animals are relocated to good homes.

Many of the animals they have are in fact rescues, some were mistreated and some came to us because their owners could no longer cater for their needs.

Pythons & Boas
Names sure to create a stir, with a wide variety of species at hand, see for yourself the diversity in species, from the tiny children's python, to the commonly kept royal python, and including some of the true monsters of the species from the Burmese and Indian.
Education through interaction with some of the world's most fascinating creatures, always provides an entertaining experience whilst raising awareness to the special needs of some of the more exotic animals.

Jo's Snowdon Group
Young People have got their heads in the clouds……………..Young People Climb Snowdon
Six young people from Neath Port Talbot took part in a residential held at the National Eisteddfod organised in partnership with the Youth Service and Urdd Gobaith Cymru. The project celebrated Welsh culture and language and broadened horizons.
The residential involved sleeping in traditional tepees at the Nation Eisteddfod and taking part in a variety of outdoor activities including rock climbing and Kayaking. The highlight of the residential was a trek up Mount Snowdon which involved battling challenging terrain and adverse weather conditions. Communication skills and team work were highlighted as the young people supported each other and worked effectively as a team to climb the mountain. Through their involvement in the project the young people gain a huge sense of achievement, had improved levels of fitness and had a unique experience that they would not have normally had access to.
