The YoCO Programme

The YoCO Programme has been designed by educational experts within the charity to help young people manage and overcome today’s challenges which come in many forms, including:

PRESSURES OF SOCIAL MEDIA

BULLYING IN PERSON / ONLINE

MENTAL HEALTH CHALLENGES

LACK OF CONFIDENCE

PEER PRESSURE TO TAKE RISKS

The small groups of up to 12 young people meet in central venues throughout Oxfordshire every week for 15-18 months. Volunteer youth group leaders run the sessions with a professional team in support. 

 

The YoCO Programme is designed to improve mental health and well-being and offers an amazing opportunity for personal growth and development that will remain with them for the rest of their lives.

Historically, the groups have visited The Nasio Trust in Western Kenya for hands-on volunteering, gaining life changing experiences in a different culture. With the current restrictions on international travel due to Covid-19, we are looking at UK based alternatives for 2020/21 groups.

The young people develop and grow with YoCO throughout the programme and many choose to stay connected with YoCO by joining the Alumni Group after completing the programme.
