A new youth initiative has started in Bushmills working with young males.

Opportunity Youth’s ‘One Stop Shop’ project, funded by the Public Health Agency, is delivering a 10 week outreach programme addressing health promotion, drug/alcohol education, self-worth and relationships.

Participants will also engage in an art project exploring young people’s aspirations.

Stu Plant of Opportunity Youth, delivering the programme said, “Working closely with Selena Ramsey (Children and Young People’s Strategic Partnership) and Bushmills Community Association, we have designed a programme which offers young people the opportunity to further their potential, whilst providing support and advice on a wide range of issues.

“The group are a great bunch of lads.

“ I am confident they will find the programme challenging, informative and enjoyable.”
