In Schools & The Community

OTYA are delighted to be able to

offer FREE ONLINE workshops and classes to

young people in Surrey and across the UK,

alongside being back in the community and

schools working with young people.

Young people have been isolated in their homes

for nearly a year, some in very toxic environments

others just driven crazy by boredom.

Fitness and health has become a big concern

as young people become more and more

inactive and unmotivated due to the current situation and as schools close,

Mental health cases and referrals have

increased to a level never seen before

and the services are over stretched,

Anti social behaviour is on the increase

because young people are struggling

with the new normal and are lashing

out out of fear and confusion.

Young people are in turmoil.


Please contact

for any further information or for bookings.

Move 2 Improve is a new and exciting project developed

to help get young people moving and dancing but also tackle some of the most common mental health issues they face.

In a time where mental health cases are sky rocketing and the services are struggling to see young people,

here at OTYA we wanted to develop a fun, interactive and supportive workshop that can help young people who cannot access 121 services due to their own anxiety accessing

the services or long waiting times.

FREE Classes will be held TUESDAY's on Zoom

(de Stafford school thereafter),

please email f

or more details.

Mental Health workshop delivered by Alexia OTYA C.I.C

Dance Class delivered by local dance company.




Keeping active is a core element to keeping a peaceful and healthy mind, and helps balance the over-abundance of thoughts and feelings. Dancing as a group activity reinforces positive thinking and development.






A 6-session, school-based mental health awareness project.

Each week we discuss a different topic around emotions and relationships.

Students are invited to talk about how the topic affects them, what the triggers are and then we look at coping strategies and how to implement them.


Emotions and relationships begin developing, evolving

and emerging in young people. When this begins, it can be confusing and may cause feelings of alienation or isolation. This project targeted the confusion young people have to face and ensuring they don't have to face it alone.

Young people are offered additional support if needed and early help referrals done where risk is identified.


A 6-week school based project delivered in partnership with Surrey Council & Surrey Police.

This project was designed to raise awareness and get young people thinking about the consequences of getting involved in anti social behaviour, gangs, county lines, drug dealing, alcohol and drug use and educate them on the law relating to these types of crimes to deter them.

It is a question & answer based session with interactive games and role play to put young people in the shoes of the public or peers.

Our Work Experience

A 4-week, online-based work experience project.

Each week we discuss a different topic and work through challenges that you might face in four different industries.

We offer event planning and management, graphics design, creative writing and artistic thinking.

Young people are offered additional support if needed and their work progress is logged and monitored asides their 1to1 sessions. They will recieve a signed e-certificate to prove their hard work and attendance, and their work permanently displayed proudly on this website!

On a Video Call


Digital Family Quiz.

Does your family know its TikTok from its Twitter?

Its Deliveroo from its Discord?

And its Bieber from its Baby Shark?

Christmas 2020, here at OTYA we ran a new online quiz event called Your Digital Family – about all the brilliant and different things families love doing online.

9 families joined us for an hour of questions, fun, and family interaction to test their families knowledge and find out just how much they know about the digital world.

We had three rounds of simple but challenging questions, that gave them some great new ideas for family conversations about tech – and things they could do together both online and offline.

We gave away £500 worth of prizes for the top 3 winners - a Samsung Tabet, A Virgin Experience and Now TV Stick!!

All the other families were delivered

tubs of celebrations for taking part.

Thank you so much to the funders!!
