Wishing Everyone A Happy Christmas & An Amazing 2022!

Happy end of the year and happy holidays to you all! ๐Ÿ˜Š

What a year it has been! ๐Ÿฅ‚ ๐Ÿ’œ

We have been so busy here at OTYA and I wanted to share some of the WINโ€™S we have had ๐ŸŽ‰

I have successfully drawn down over ยฃ17'000 in funding to support young people with their mental, physical and emotional health from the amazing team at @activesurrey @sportengland @surreydance21 and from local and charities and private schools in the UK! ๐Ÿ˜Š

We have successfully delivered 4 โ€“ 8-week Move 2 Improve courses with the amazing @rockitwithrho @bayleyrio and are on track to deliver another 4 in 2022! ๐Ÿ˜Š

We have successfully delivered 6 โ€“ 8-week Our Time To Get Fit boot camp courses with the amazing @rockitwithrho @anytimefitness247 @bayleyrio and are on track to start a fresh boot camp experience in 2022 for 50 young people alongside schools in Tandridge! ๐Ÿ˜Š

We successfully delivered an EPIC summer camp for 40 young people under the โ€˜free school mealsโ€™ initiative from @HAF & @ukgovernment which made sure young people stayed healthy, active and had lots of fun! We are on track to deliver an Easter Camp in 2022! ๐Ÿ˜Š

We successfully delivered RU OK? a 6-week Mental health course to over 100 young people in 3 schools in Surrey, this will continue into 2022 with 4 more schools signed up for the courses ๐Ÿ˜Š

We successfully delivered Identity โ€“ a 6-week anti-social behavioural awareness course to over 100 young people in 4 schools in Surrey, this will continue in 2022 with 2 more schools signed up to the courses! ๐Ÿ˜Š

A huge congratulations to our newly fully qualified teacher Bayley-Rio who completed her Dance and Fitness to Music qualification by @EMDUK in August and now takes up the position of Dance and Fitness Project Manager with us here at OTYA! ๐Ÿ˜Š

We have so much more to share with you in the new year, we have new courses and projects, a youth club experience, and a special announcement regarding our own premises โ€“ I cannot wait to share it with you!! ๐Ÿ˜Š

I want to say a huge thank you to my staff team & partners - Bayley-Rio, Niye, Carol, Claire, Louis, Kalen, Javed, Ash, Sarah, Shannagh, Stephen, Rhona, Jess & all the young people who have attended the workshops and classes, I couldn't have done it all without your help, support and attendance! ๐Ÿ’œ

For now, we are closing the doors, having a well-deserved break and catching up with our families and friends over Christmas, we will be on socials from time to time but overall, we will be closed until the 13th January when we will be launching our new amazing timetable, keep your eyes peeled!๐Ÿ‘€๐Ÿ‘€๐Ÿ‘€

Have a lovely Christmas and NYE, please do not let the restrictions stop you from quality time with your family & friends (the people who make the rules do not stand by them so why should you?) Stay safe and well, make time to rest but also time to celebrate, we have been denied these basic human rights for long enough! ๐Ÿ‘ฉโ€๐Ÿ‘ฉโ€๐Ÿ‘งโ€๐Ÿ‘ง

Sending so much love and healing to you, see you all in 2022!!

Love Alexia and the OTYA Tribe ๐Ÿ˜Š
