This program will be part of a three part series, run with Social Studio’s youth community (alongside a local basketball program).

Week 2:

Practical session

Two such programs (with two separate youth groups) will run in parallel- one on Mondays, the other on Thursdays .
We encourage the same volunteers to sign up for as many sessions in each parallel series if it suits, and will prioritise allocations accordingly.
