The project has in the past worked with 11 to 19-year-olds, but has now extended its to work 10 to 25-year-olds.

This is enabling the youth workers to engage with those in school year six who are in the transition to high school period by offering taster sessions, as well as helping those in their 20s who are embarking on life after education or needing further advice on opportunities open to them.

Level Two has just moved back to its old base above Tesco in Hamilton Road – now known as The Youth Hub – which will be the venue for its activities:

? Mondays, 6.30pm to 8pm, Addicted 2 Dance, for school years 7 to 13;

? Tuesdays, 4pm to 5.30pm, year six transition to high school;

? Wednesdays, 3.15pm to 4.45pm, school year seven open session;
