Free and low-cost activities for young people
YMCA Walthamstow’s Youth Service has a range of activities for young people, of all ages and abilities. If you are between 11–21 years of age then this is the service for you. We believe that all young people deserve the best possible start in life, to be inspired, and to reach their full potential. Our Youth Service programmes and activities aim to achieve this by providing opportunities and support for young people.
If you are interested in hanging out in a safe place, meeting new people, and taking part in a wide range of activities – then why not join us on Facebook and Instagram. We are constantly revising our activities to ensure that we have something for everyone.

In light of the recent announcement by the government and the guidance set out by Basketball England we have had to suspend the planned basketball sessions until further notice.
Some centre-based sessions are now running, with youth workers available on site.
