Crescent Summer School

Crescent Summer School

Crescent Summer School CIC (CSSP) is an independent community interest company. set up by young people. We have our own management committee which is made up of 2/3rds young people under the age of 18. We are a grass roots, volunteer led organisation and we believe this is a key strength.

Our vision is to empower and inspire young people to enable them to become resilient, confident and motivated to achieve their goals.

Holiday Club Programme

Our strategic objectives are to provide holiday club activities throughout the year to provide meaningful, creative and inspiring programme of activities. The holiday club programme we aim to create each year is a balance of fun, recreational activities, building social skills and informal educational workshops.

Informal education is delivered in an creative way using for example expressive & creative arts such as drama, painting, poetry and photography; we aim to deliver key messages about issues relevant to young people and build a sense of community and community cohesion.

Our Aim

Our aim is to help young people aged between 10 – 18 years of Biscot, Beech Hill, Dallow and Saints wards of Luton during the school holidays to develop their physical, mental and capacities that may develop them into mature individuals and active members of society. We run holiday clubs over 3 weeks each summer and 1 week in October, December, February, Easter and May. The holiday clubs include sports, arts crafts, issue based workshops and outings that are designed to improve mental  & physical wellbeing for deprived young people.

Each year we recruit, train and support young people as volunteers and young volunteers have the opportunity to work towards the Duke of Edinburgh Bronze Award and AQA certificate in volunteering.

The project is funded by the various funding bodies which included BBC Children In Need, Energise Luton, Awards For All, Postcode Lottery & Wixamtree Trust,
