YC Abilities School Holiday Program
Every school holidays the Youth Connections Abilities team runs a School Holiday Program.
The program runs from Monday to Friday during school holidays, from 8am to 5pm.
The YC Abilities team offers a range of exciting and interactive activities from bowling, picnics, animal interactions, movie screenings, sporting trips and outdoor games. The participants also get hands on with cooking classes, discos and dance parties.
The holiday program allows young people to socialise while having fun. Not only are all the activities educational, providing participants with the opportunity to build their skills, but it is an opportunity to have fun together with old friends and make new friends.
The team members at YC try to make the school holidays as fun as possible by exploring new things and participating in activities they wouldn’t normally have the chance to.
Building the confidence of the participants is also a major objective of the program, giving them the opportunity to do things for themselves while guided and supported by the staff. The objective is to expose the participants to new experiences to grow their confidence and skills.
Now at the end of the first week of the 3 week holiday program, the participants have had some great opportunities such as visiting a koala park sanctuary, making pizzas and playing indoor cricket, playing around on an inflatable water park, running around at laser blast and even a dolphin cruise at Nelsons Bay.
Follow us in the next few weeks to find out what else the kids get up too with their school holidays.
