Free Activities for Young People
YMCA East London’s Youth Service has a range of activities for young people, of all ages and abilities. If you are between 11–21 years of age then this is the service for you. We believe that all young people deserve the best possible start in life, to be inspired and to reach their full potential. Our Youth Service programmes and activities aim to achieve this by providing opportunities and support for young people.
