Create has evolved out of Urban Warriors which started in 2004 as a gap year project aimed at training gap year students in youth and schools work and engaging them in youth work across the town. Since then it grew and developed and became a programme, which not only attracts gap year students but also people who are prepared to commit to 2, 3 and 4 years of volunteering and training to bring hope and restoration to the youth and children of Yeovil.
We aim to meet practical, spiritual, emotional and physical needs in the community and inspire this generation to become a generation of change, hope and love. Passionate about raising self-esteem, giving young people the opportunities to achieve and explore their creativity.
We are also keen to provide teenagers with positive role models who encourage them, listen to them, and support them. Therefore, we provide a link between school and social life, giving students opportunities to express themselves, discuss issues that affect them, be creative, have fun and relax. This is all supported by out of school involvement including youth groups, camps and holidays, events, different academies like rock academy, pop academy, dance academy and football academy, media training, detached work and drop-ins.
