The YMA has been created because young people in Beckenham Hill, Bellingham and Downham said they wanted more worthwhile youth activities for them and their mates.

It’s nice to feel a part of something, everyone knows that. So, if you’re 13-19, the YMA is here for you.

At the YMA you’ll get to hang out in a safe place, work on projects that you want to be involved in. But not the kind of projects you work on in school. The YMA is not school. The projects are things like music recording and production, street art and fashion shows…

Become a Young Maker and you say what goes at the YMA.

The Young Makers pack is like a starter kit, a welcome pack, a member’s gift… get the idea? It includes items that Young Makers have decided are essential for project planning and feeling a part of something.
