Every Saturday, the IT hub in Ampthill becomes Somers Town Youth Club, offering morning homework help, lunch, and afternoon activities for kids. 

These sessions in Somers Town improved children's engagement, confidence, and skills through activities like knitting, arts, crafts, and board games. 

During the Ampthill Festive event, the kids made hot chocolate and homemade treats for everyone. For this event, the children learned accountability by creating posters to raise money for future events and promote sustainability for the youth club.
