Crescent Summer School Project (CSSP) is an independent community organisation set up in 1990 by young people. We have our own management committee which is made up of 2/3rds young people under the age of 18. We are a grass roots, volunteer led organisation and we believe this is a key strength.
Our management committee meets regularly to manage our work and we consult with young people on a regular basis. We work closely with CYCD and they are a supporting partner to our organisation.
Our vision is to empower and inspire young people to enable them to become resilient, confident and motivated to achieve their goals.
Our strategic objectives are to provide holiday club activities throughout the year to provide meaningful, creative and inspiring programme of activities. The holiday club programme we aim to create each year is a balance of fun, recreational activities, building social skills and informal educational workshops.
Informal education is delivered in an creative way using for example expressive & creative arts such as drama, painting, poetry and photography; we aim to deliver key messages about issues relevant to young people and build a sense of community and community cohesion.
Each year we recruit, train and support young people as volunteers and young volunteers have the opportunity to work towards the Duke of Edinburgh Bronze Award and AQA certificate in volunteering.
