Youngsters living in the Blyth area aged between 11 and 18 are being encouraged to sign up to a free initiative led by the British Army.
The six-week programme starts on September 14. It will offer this age group the chance to take part in a series of team-building and leadership challenges.
The weekly courses will be held between 5pm and 6pm at the Army Reserve Centre on Cowpen Road.
It follows the success of a similar initiative – LifeSKILLS – organised as part of the Newsham Community Matters project, developed by a team at Northumberland County Council.
By engaging young people in hands-on, outside the classroom sessions that include team-building and sporting activities, it is hoped that the programme will help to tackle anti-social behaviour in the area.
Numbers for the courses are limited and anyone interested is asked to pre-register by Thursday, September 7 by emailing Aileen Barrass, the county council’s resident involvement officer.
Her council email address is as follows: firstname.lastname@example.org
