East Riding College is running a Princes Trust xl club at the ACE Centre, Manorfield Road, from January 31 and limited places are available.
It is aimed at 16 to 18-year-olds who are not in education, employment or training and participants attend two days each week for 12 weeks.

Assistant director Alison Gray said: "With us you could have fun, try new activities and learn the skills you need to help progress in your education or get a job.
"The clubs follow an informal programme, which will provide you with the chance to get involved in five different activity areas."

The areas are:

  • You're in the team: work as a team with a small group of people, make friends and share experiences
  • Doing my bit: discover what it is in your community that you want to change, learn how to take action and do your bit
  • This is the business: test out your creative and enterprise skills and work on a project that will allow you to take risks, lead a team and make a profit
  • The world of work: find out what kind of work is out there for you, and get information about what you need to do to put yourself in the best position to get the job you want
  • Over to you: your chance to practise your favourite activity or try something completely new, from playing sport to cooking a two-course meal

For more information or to apply, call the College on 0845 120 0037. Financial support may be available.
