Youth Space

For many lucky children and teens, the summer holidays are characterised by weeks of exploring new places;enjoying travel, trips and treats; and partaking in memorable family experiences.
For countless others living in poverty, the summer holidays are defined by boredom and frustration –fertile breeding ground for strained family interactions and hanging out with the wrong crowd, loitering on the borders of petty crime.
Youth Space transforms the summer holiday period for over 80 deprived kids.
