North Yorkshire Youth, (NYY) based at Carlton Lodge Activity Centre near Thirsk, North Yorkshire is demonstrating the ‘big society’ in action with its on-going relationship with the Groundwork charity by providing activity events that support the charity’s aims.
Groundwork’s initiatives aim at bringing out the best in young people by helping them to improve their local area, getting people back into work by creating green jobs and building strong communities by improving green space. Groundwork help people into work through training and practical experience and also support young people to help them to reach their potential.
“We are delighted that Groundwork has entrusted North Yorkshire Youth and Carlton Lodge Activity Centre to deliver the activity courses for the first week of the National Citizenship service”. comments David Sharp chief executive.
Volunteers recruited by Groundwork have been using the Carlton Lodge Activity Centre dry stone walling activity as one of the team organising activities that engages the students. It helps them to continue building and to complete the wall under the instruction of a master dry stone waller.
