Youth Service Activities - Keighley Team

What do we do?

We provide things to do, someone to talk to and places for young people to go.

We provide opportunities for young people to participate in a range of activities, celebrate their achievements and become actively involved in their communities.

We ensure that young people’s rights and responsibilities are central to our work.

We offer new experiences for thousands of young people from Keighley and the surrounding area who wish to take part in our wide range of activities including music events, outdoor challenges, international exchanges, song writing, drama, photography, film-making, environmental projects, cultural events and more.

Young people can enjoy and achieve with the Youth Service in Keighley.

We create opportunities for young people to learn new things, to share their skills, and take an active role in their communities, and to achieve recognition by gaining accreditation and awards.

We also offer young people the chance to participate in the well-recognised Duke Of Edinburgh Awards Scheme.

To find out more about what activities are taking place in your area, or if you are interested in volunteering with the Youth Service in Keighley, please contact the Keighley Young People's Centre on 01535 618191.
