Visiting schools and colleges

1 Mar

Over the last couple of months we’ve spoken to over 600 young women in Islington. 600! Schools and colleges have been the main places where we’ve chatted to people and along the way we’ve found out loads about what young women like to do in their spare time. Here’s are some of our favourite responses to questions we asked young women about what they like to do:

I don’t go to youth clubs or activities because…

“I spend most of my time reading and doing assignments”

I enjoy attending youth clubs because…

“I enjoy it because I get to meet new people and explore places”

What would encourage you to go to more activities?

‘If there are any interesting activities to take part in”

What projects would be of interest to you if you could do anything?

“Volunteering abroad”

‘’More performing arts such as singing dancing rapping and acting”

What would be your ideal activity if money were no object?

“Travelling abroad to help the deprived build schools”

What would be your perfect evening out?

“Restaurant or cinema with friends”

Where do you want to be in 2 years time?

“I would like to be in university studying something I’m interested in”

We are feeding all the results of our information-gathering into exciting new provision!
