The Covid pandemic has been extremely challenging time for our children and young people as they adapt to remote learning and not being able to see friends or take part in activities in the way they would normally be able to do.
To combat those feelings of isolation or loneliness, there are a range of online activities that are available to children and young people across Clackmannanshire.
From drama and dance to youth clubs and guitar lessons, you will find a list below of the activities on offer and how you can join in and take part.
Social and educational group for members of the LGBTQ community.
We offer a range of activities but are always looking for new ideas to help shape the group.
Saturday sessions will always focus on creativity.
The Youth Council is a constituted group of young people from Clackmannanshire aged 14- 25. Their role is to consult with young people, act on behalf of young people and represent young people.
The group meet weekly and they have been involved in many different opportunities, for example their annual youth assembly, power house event and webinars on returning to school. They have also been involved in the climate change panel, budget proposals, health and wellbeing amongst other things.
Children and young people can shape services and support to meet their needs and interests.
Power House activities aim to provide young with opportunities to get their voice heard.
Young people who get involved will develop programmes and projects, for example holiday programmes, youth provision, climate change projects.
Guitar lessons are available via Google Classroom or Google Meets.
These beginner lessons will be on Google Classroom or Google Meets. If an instrument is needed, we will try our best to supply one.
These sessions take place via Zoom. Those wanting to take part will be sent a link prior to the session starting with login details.
Sessions will have a weekly theme each week and a dance routine to follow.
As time goes on, those taking part will have the opportunity to help to decide the theme and possibly take part in an online performance.
This is a fun, interactive session.
Our drama sessions will be fun and light hearted and will lead to everyone attending taking part in a show which has been made possible by working in partnership with positive stories for negative times.
Young people will meet via Google Meet covering issue based topics such as body image, identity, bullying and mental health.
This programme will give participants the confidence to carry out basic bike repairs, servicing and jobs that may need the input of a experienced technician.
