Established in 2015 we are a group of volunteers who came together with the shared aim of providing ongoing engagement sessions with the young people of Saddleworth and surrounding areas. We ran sessions from a number of locations around Greenfield before settling back into our old home at the Satellite Centre.
Our aim is to engage children and young people and develop positive social values. This is achieved through a variety of activities in each of our weekly sessions.
We provide a safe place for children to interact with others, to build new skills and to make lasting friendships.
Mondays 5:30PM-7:30PM Junior Session
Wednesdays 1:15PM-3:30PM Senior Session
Fridays 6:30PM-9PM Senior Session
We also run a Saturday morning cafe providing much needed refreshments for young people participating in Rugby, Football, Saddleworth Olympics and residents alike. All profits raised go towards subsidising our voluntary youth service. The cafe is run by a mixture of YOLO staff and the young people that attend our sessions.
