Warlingham School, Surrey County Council, Surrey Police, Sport England, Kayleigh Robinson Art, Specialist Youth Work and National Lottery are just seven of our supporters and groups we have worked with to help achieve our goal!
We have been meeting milestones and making a mark with our youth with Rock it with Rho, Stafford School. Aqua Sports Company, Active Surrey, We Rise Again, Bee's Bakes and Oxted School!
I have been working with Alexia from Our Time Youth Agency for the past year helping her to deliver her workshops at the local secondary schools and alternative learning provisions.
I have never seen anyone engage a young person on the level that Alexia does and her enthusiasm is infectious, I quite often watch in awe. Add that to the creative and informative workshops then you definitely have a winning formula.
The workshops cover really important topics affecting young people including, drugs, alcohol, shoplifting, county lines, gangs and anti-social behaviour. Due to recent events Alexia will also be adding hate-crime awareness to these workshops.
Alexia has managed to engage around 200 people so far in these workshops who are then able to go on and hopefully be a positive influence on their peers which means the ‘reach’ of these workshops is potentially several hundred young people. If I had my way these workshops would be run in every Secondary school in the County for the benefit of young people and their local communities.

Kayleigh is a visionary with such a creative eye, she is amazing at finding detail and then bringing it to life. She draws such detailed pictures with grace, her portraits are stunning!
Her ideas are inspiring and her drive is second to none, a true asset to the team! We are so grateful for Kayleigh being on board with our team here at Our Time Youth Agency.
