Through workshops and youth-centred casework we support young people in identifying issues affecting them, including how they would like to move forward into education and employment. The activities ran in the centre and through detached youth work create an environment where the young people visiting us can build relationships with each other and with our experienced team.

Overall, all Velos Youth activities are designed and delivered in an inclusive, youth-centric way, inviting the young people visiting to develop the future of Velos Youth with us.


Workshops and activities at Velos Youth are aimed at providing a structured, creative and recreational atmosphere for young people. Read more about our workshops here.

Art and creativity sessions are run regularly. We use this as a way for young people to connect with each other and with their own emotions. We always display the art they make around the centre so that each individual can see the impact they have on the space.

Another example are our Group LEAP (Learning and Education Action Plan) sessions, which began as part of Monopati pilot project. They encourage young people to engage in learning and education and think about their present and future.

Youth-centred Casework

At Velos Youth, casework is implemented holistically from youth work, psychosocial and community entry points. We empower each young person to engage with their own progress and future.

This involves:

  • assessing cases of young people who need guidance and support,
  • monitoring and following-up according to an evidence-based youth work systems for tracking change and fostering action (Lamplight), and
  • referring young people to relevant services
