Whats it all about?
Youth Vibe is a youth service in Cheshire, led by Deaf, hearing impaired and hearing young people. We provide activities for young people aged 8 to 18 offering great experiences in an inclusive environment. Young people are encouraged to bring friends or make new ones! Whether you sign or speak, we all chat together!
What do we get up to?
Fun Activities – We do lots of different activities, in the past we have done fun things like Rock climbing, Trampolining, Fencing, Archery, Arts and crafts, cookery, the young people came up with the ideas and the Youth Workers then planned them.
Youth Developments and Achievements – Last year 8 young people completed their Duke of Edinburgh’s Bronze Expedition and are now working towards completing the whole Award. We have a Young leaders scheme where the older young people hold the opportunity to complete training and become a Young leader within the Youth sessions.
