Futureversity is a youth led organisation that believes all young people have the potential to be extraordinary. They offer a range of inspiring courses for 11-25 year olds to help young people develop their skills and self-belief.
Over the last summer Futureversity ran two activities at the Green Man Community Centre including; a short introduction to film making course and a weeks worth of street sports activities.
Now they are coming back again, on Monday 24th October with the Airborne Circus to run “Circus Skills Workshops”
Mark Vargeson, the Futureversity Programme manager in Barnet described the workshops as:
“An exciting new way to exercise! This taster course is a chance for you to explore circus skills and see if you want to take your interest further. Develop physical, mental, and social skills, including balance, flexibility and teamwork. Workshops will include juggling, Diabolo, acrobatics, clowning, tight wire and more. The course is designed to introduce technical circus skills, to encourage critical thinking and inspire creativity. No experience is needed although a background in gymnastics or dance can be helpful.”
There are two sessions running:
Ideally the young people on Strawberry Vale need to register on-line with Futureversity, however if they need help doing this they can pop into the centre with a parent or guardian and Mark Healey the Centre Manager can help register them as well.
Although people can turn up on the day, places are limited and preference will be giving to those who have registered beforehand.
Mark Healey said
“It would be nice to get all the young people on the estate registered for Futureversity so that they can benefit from some of the opportunities that are available for them. It is relatively easy to sign up on-line and I am happy to help Strawberry Vale residents to do this. It is also worth noting that the Centre’s computer room is now up and running and residents are welcome to pop in and use it (all they have to do is book in with me, although those 16 or under will need to be supervised by a parent or guardian when using the room). It would be really good to see a lot more residents using the centre and making better use of the facilities that are here.”
