We run a diverse mixture of workshops and activities every week in order to  provide a structured, creative and recreational atmosphere for young people. To keep things relevant and exciting, many of our activities change every week. Follow us on social media (@VelosYouth) to see what we get up to!

Some examples of workshops and activities in Velos Youth are:

  • Craft activities – painting, animation, sewing etc
  • Board games and video games
  • Sport activities – football, basketball and cricket
  • Skills sharing workshops – employment, entrepreneurship, IT skills
