About The Community Youth Project
The Community Youth Project was born in response to the demise of Community Youth Services. In the face of this, a number of local councils in South Somerset who were dedicated to supporting their young people got together to explore the provision of a sustainable youth worker resource which could be efficiently employed across their communities.
