Shaping Futures at YMCA Bradford
||Culture Fusion, 125 Thornton Road, BD1 2EP
||Attendance will be one day a week for up to 3 months
Shaping Futures is free and aimed at 16 to 25 years olds wanting a first step into employment, education or training.
Participants will learn about environmental upcycling and work towards transforming an outdoor space into a sensory garden. (They do not need any previous experience of working outdoors but, because of the nature of the space and work, they do need to be able to walk, climb slopes and stairs and take part in physical activity such as planting and digging).
Attendance will be one day a week for up to 3 months (depending on when they start) and at the end of the project we will support them in progressing onto further training or employment.
