Bridges2Beats, Waltham Cross

Bridges2Beats is a unique music project run by YC Hertfordshire which looks at the impact of how music can break down barriers between different cultures. As part of the project you'll work towards a live performance and gain a Duke of Edinburgh's Award section certificate. If you can commit to one evening a week for at least 14 weeks, this project could be for you.

Broxbourne Youth Council

Youth councils are groups of young people aged 11–19 (up to 24 if you have a learning disability), who come together to represent young people in their local area. Nobody knows about the issues affecting young people better than young people themselves, so come along and have your say. The Broxbourne Youth Council is supported by YC Hertfordshire and will enable you to present your views to those who make decisions so that they can work to improve things in the local community.

Cheshunt Duke of Edinburgh's Award Project

The Duke of Edinburgh’s Award (DofE) is a real adventure from beginning to end. It doesn’t matter who you are or where you are from, you just need to be aged between 13 and 24 and ready to jump into the best time of your life! Come along to the Broxbourne DofE sessions which are held every three weeks on Fridays at Cheshunt Young People's Centre.

Joining the group will allow you to meet other LGBTQ young people in a safe space. You'll find the meetings informative and fun and the staff supportive to all who attend.
