Companions Youth Project
A new voluntary group that operates from a Mosque within Nelson.
We cater for young boys between the ages of 10 upwards and our main goals are as follows
Promote spiritual and physical well-being
Encourage community activities
Nurture the concept of teamwork
Live as good citizens
Enable harmony and understanding
We are all volunteers and unpaid , but we enjoy working with the youth of today to tackle some of the issues that young people face as they grow up.
Some of the activities we have planned are outdoor pursuits such as orienteering, hill walking, including residentials where the young people can learn to be independent away from home and function as a good team member as well as grow in confidence as an individual.
We also have a regular football session at a sports hall and we are looking to put together some football teams and invite local groups to participate in a tournament
For the spiritual element, we have members who can deliver talks that educate the young people in how to avoid falling into bad behaviour and promote the morals that are essential today.
