FYI Get inspired Future Youth Inspired (FYI) is the new name for our borough’s free summer holiday courses and activities for young people. F YI, previously known as Futureversity, is created by young people for young people, so you are guaranteed to find something that will grab your interest or suit your style. There is something for everyone and, better yet, it is all completely free of charge. FYI will run for five weeks over the summer holidays, from Monday, 28 July until Friday, 29 August. Its courses are specially designed for young people who either live, study or go to school in the borough and are aged between 13-19 (or up to 25 for those who require additional support). There is also a smaller range of courses available for 11 and 12 years olds. The wide variety of free courses includes Build a Bike; animation; canoeing; parkour (‘free running’); Ariel Circus Skills; hair, beauty and barbering; water sports; photography; Light and Shadow Dance; and catering and hospitality. Visit to find out what is on offer and to book your place. The online booking system will show you where and when the activities are taking place and how many spaces are available. All courses are offered on a first come, first served basis. FYI gives an opportunity to try out fun and inspirational experiences, learn new skills and get to know other young people in the local area. By taking part, you will have the chance to build your abilities and confidence, while helping you to gain a nationally recognised accreditation. The council’s Youth and Connexions staff also offer advice and support to ENROLL TODAY any young people who may not be in education, employment or training. ■ ■ Email ■ Call 020 8825 8226 ■ Places will be offered on a first come, first served basis. around ealing Summer 2014 11
