In Schools & The Community


After months of uncertainty OTYA is delighted

to be back in the community and

schools working with young people.

Young people have been isolated in their homes

for months, some in very toxic environments

others just driven crazy by boredom. 

Mental health cases and referrals have increased to a level never seen before and the services

are over stretched. As young people slowly come out of lockdown anti social behaviour in the community has increased significantly too.

We have added more subjects in to Identity, our anti social behaviour awareness project &

RU OK? our mental health support project

to reflect the current situation and help

unpick and help resolve some of the issues

young people now face back in society.

Please contact

for any further information or for bookings.


“Action is the foundational key to all success.”

Pablo Picasso

Our Time To Get Fit was a huge success and we want to thank all those who were involved - young poeple, surrey police, volunteers and parents who jumped in too!


A huge thanks to the amazing @rockitwithRho Rhona Noel who lead on the activities each week <3

I am delighted to announce that Sport England and Active Surrey have confirmed the project will be funded as a satalite project for 30weeks!!! This is EPIC and we are so this space for the details and location of the new project :) 





"I would so much like young people to have a sense of the gift that they are." – John Denver

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 the law relating to Anti Social crimes. It was 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.

"The biggest adventure you can ever take, is to live the life of your dreams." 

– Oprah Winfrey

A school-based dance project with a twist! During the session we dance, laugh and sweat but we also mix it up with a bit of mindfulness and learn the benefit of taking a breath. We sit and chat about mental health issues like anxiety, low confidence or a negative body image and how that looks and feels... it is more than just a dance class!

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.

Our Work Experience
