NEWS & EVENTS

All the latest news, events and updates from Conscious Youth.

OUR PARTNERS

We are grateful for the help and support of our partner organisations.

About US

We are an award winning, community organisation led by & for young people.
Inspire, Empower and Transform

Conscious Youth C.I.C was set up in 2016 in response to council cuts and the closure of youth provisions and services within Kirklees.

Our work is developed through consultation activities with young people starting with their skills, passions, interests and concerns. Our key priorities aim to address active citizenship and community cohesion.

Our activities and events include; a youth group, social action, creative arts, fundraising, culture sharing, community engagement and personal development workshops in schools and community spaces.

The organisation is run by Serena Johnson and Sophie Simpson who both have established a great reputation in the delivery of youth and community work projects and are supported by an advisory board who are experienced in social enterprise management and youth and community development.

We are proudly sponsored by:
West Police Crime Commissioner
One community - Bright Ideas fund





This afternoon we did some consultation with young people in the Dewsbury Moor area. Their voices will help inform the development of a Housing Pathways Model for Kirklees.
A big thank you to Bramwells Sports Development Team Tanisha Bramwell for supporting us!

Momo the sinister 'suicide game' which 'targets' children has made its way to the UK.
Parents have been warned about the sick game which has been targeting youngsters via Whatsapp.

Google trends shows the number of people in the UK, searching 'how to play the momo challenge' is up by more than 450 per cent.

The challenge involves a terrifying looking woman with bulging eyes and straggly hair called Momo who contacts children.
Kids receive a message request on Whatsapp from an unknown number.
The contact then sends graphic images and says she will 'curse them' if they do not follow her instructions to harm others or themselves.

National Online Safety (NOS), an organisation that provides specialist information in online safety for schools, has released some recommendations for parents.
The suicide challenge is now reportedly hacking into popular children's games including including Peppa Pig and Fortnite.

A poster by NOS recommends eight 'top tips' to help parents prevent their children from being affected by the challenge.

Half term Conscious Kidz; we had consultation activities to find out what activities young people want, discussions around their local park, who their role models are and what they know about different foods . This information will influence our future sessions & projects. #Youth-led

Layla made loom bands and sold them to her peers today to raise money for a homeless charity. 👏😊

We had a number of older young people come in just wanting somewhere safe and welcoming to hangout. We understand how important it is to have our services running on more evenings especially during half term holidays & we are continuously seeking support to make this possible.

Day 2

Another great day @ Bradley Woods Activity Centre witnessing young people (11+) conquer their fears of heights whilst supporting one another to do so. Like yesterday we did consultation on behalf of Kirklees Youth Alliance.

Over the last 2 days we have heard the views and opinions of over 60 young people on what they want from a community-based youth “offer”.

Through these discussions we were able to gain a greater understanding of the issues affecting young people and we plan to explore this further in our youth club sessions.

Once again a massive thank you to CUMMINS TURBO TECHNOLOGIES for providing free lunches to all the participants and volunteers. It’s contributions and support like this which make a significant difference to the experience. 💯

We also did a consultation activity on behalf of Kirklees Youth Alliance, in which young people gave their ideas and views around what they want from a community-based youth “offer”.

Today the young people had new experiences and accomplished some of their Curriculum for Life, ‘Things every young person should experience by the age of 12’ 🎉

A massive thank you to Cummins Turbo Technologies for providing FREE lunches to all the participants and staff. It’s contributions like this that make a significant difference to the experience. 💯

We still need your votes for our social action project, if you haven’t voted then please take the time to do so.
