Our Time Youth Agency 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 were isolated in their homes for nearly 2 years under various government restrictions, lockdowns and school closures. The damage has been undeniable and will take years to rectify.
Fitness and health has become a big concern as young people become more and more inactive and unmotivated, and as schools close, mental health cases and referrals have increased to a level never seen before, and the services are over-stretched.
Antisocial behaviour is also on the increase because young people are struggling with the 'new normal' and are lashing out in fear and confusion.
Young people are in turmoil.
WE WANT TO HELP!

Did you know...?
During the lockdown from April - September 2020, we provided 44 Instagram Live sessions over 21 weeks.
Thank you to everyone who supported the movement, all the young people who came on the live sessions, and the influencers and partners who helped keep young people entertained and inspired.
MOVE 2 IMPROVE
Move 2 Improve is a new and exciting project developed to help get young people moving and dancing, but also tackles 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.
COMING TO A SCHOOL OR YOUTH CENTRE NEAR YOU SOON!

Remember - keeping active is a key element to keeping a peaceful and healthy mind, and helps balance the over-abundance of thoughts and feelings.
Dancing as a group activity also reinforces positive thinking and development.
So why not give it a try?!

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.
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.
