New term due to start creative centre for youngsters in Middlesbrough
6:10pm Thursday 29th August 2013 in News
CREATIVE kids have lots to look forward to as the new term gets under way at the (CORR) hART Factory.
The latest series of weekly workshops gets under way from Thursday, September 5.
A new partnership has been forged with the local Know Your Money (KYM) youth project, and from next month (September) the hART Factory will also be a validated Learning Destination for the Children’s University.
KYM is a Big Lottery-funded project aimed at young people aged 16 to 24 who are living in social housing, offering them one-to-one finance, debt and welfare advice.
The Children’s University is a not-for-profit organisation that rewards and encourages young people aged from five to 14 to continue learning beyond the school day.
Young people collect stamps in their Passports to Learning and are rewarded with certificates and a cap and gown ceremony at Middlesbrough Town Hall.
Three sets of workshops get under way on Thursdays when term starts again on September 5, all at the KYM Project at 73-75 Corporation Road, Middlesbrough.
