We’re delighted to announce the opening of the InvolveU High School Groups sessions on Wednesday and Friday evenings.
This week we will be open on two evenings for current and new members to register for all the current groups and sessions running as part of our youth work programme.
For anyone who is in S2-S6 is welcome to come along to Y2K from 6.30-8.30 p.m. on Wednesday 24th January and S1+ from 6.30-8.30 p.m. on Friday 26th January to register and get a parent/carer consent form.
Youth work staff will be on hand on these dates to answer any of your questions.
This new programme will have exciting new opportunities running each session from 6.30-7.30 p.m. from February which young people can sign up to a week in advance.
Then from 7.30-9.30 p.m. Y2K will be open to any of our members with tuck shop, games, karaoke and our newly refurbished chill out rooms which will have wifi.
Look forward to seeing you soon!

Before Christmas, the Girls Group got to make a trip to Krispy Kreme at Hermiston Gait where staff gave them a factory tour where we were shown how all the donuts were made, and got to ice and decorate our own donuts.
Staff judged who the best donut, and the winner received an extra special donut.
Thank you so much to all the staff at Krispy Kreme who took the time to welcome us and teach us about your yummy donuts.
We had a fantastic time on Sunday afternoon meeting lots of people in the community at the Mayfield and Easthouses Christmas Fayre. Several of our staff and young people were fundraising to raise funds for Y2K, with crafts made by our young people, tombola, cakes and more.
We raised over £300 on the day, and would like to give a huge thanks to the National Mining Museum, The Sun Inn, The Wheelhouse Cafe, Dean Tavern, Tesco Hardengreen, Edinburgh Butterfly and Insect World, Mayfield Leisure Centre for donating prizes for our tombola.
Thank you to all the Coop shoppers who chose Y2K as their ‘local cause’. Lisa from Coop Newtongrange was able to come and present a huge cheque for £2117.86 which was joyfully received by young people attending our Transitions group. They also loved the balloons.
The young people are coming up with ideas on how this money can best be used and passing these on to the staff. We are so grateful to the coop for all their support so we can continue providing opportunities and services for young people in our local area.
Thank you to everyone who came along to the girls’ Coffee and Cake afternoon for Children in Need on 17th November. This raised a fantastic £105 for BBC Children In Need, who have been one of our funders.
