Under 14 year olds
It is never to early to become an Active8 member
Currently our project work starts when members are 14 years of age....although there are plenty of other things to get involved with and meet new people.
We run a number of family and friends days throughout the year including a Christmas party, Halloween get together and various other events that we invite everyone along to. It is a great way to meet new friends and start building lifelong friendships....along with having a lot of fun!
We are always looking for younger people to be referred onto our project waiting list so when the time comes the young people can join.
By being involved before the start of the over 14's project we have found those members find the transition easier, the young people already know the staff and are ready and raring to go.
To join our waiting list and to be informed about our upcoming family and friends events please go to the contact us page and get in touch.
WHAT YOUNG PEOPLE SAY
'Welcome to Acceler8 (Even if there are more than 8 of you) If you're up for it, the next two years will be full of wicked weekends suited both to being active, enabling you all, no matter what your ability to try something you never thought possible. As well as chilled out weekends where the most you'll probably do is sit around, chat, watch DVDs and get advice on stuff that's troubling you. Accler8, if you'll let it will become one of the best weapons in your arsenal, it'll open you up as a person, lead you to awesome opportunities and be the most exciting part of your month. It gets even better though, as you'll be doing all of this with a group of fellow young people who you'll instantly connect with and be able to swap and share experiences. Not to mention you'll also be introduced to a group of dedicated volunteers who are sure to make your weekends ones you won't forget for a long time!'
'Acceler8 is such an incredible experience, as a member you will get to take part in activities that you may never have thought would be possible! As a person you will grow each month and share the whole experience with people that you will stay in contact with long after the two years are up. It is such an exciting experience, you will never want to leave and the memories that you build will stay with you forever!'
