Introduction

 

JusB is a community-based youth centre that works with young people during their journey to independence, helping them to make the most of their potential. Over our 16 years we have worked with thousands of young people. We are a thriving club in the heart of the Bromley area, which is fast becoming a vibrant and diverse community. Our mission ‘Inspire and enable young people to develop, be confident and value themselves' is even more relevant in today’s environment, as many young people and families struggle to cope in difficult times.

 

Through the year we strive to offer young people a variety of activities which will enable them to be better equipped for life's journey


We are appreciative of everyone who supports us in so many ways ... those who offer hours of volunteering and those who support us financially ... we could not continue without them and for this we are extremely grateful.

 

 

On behalf of the young people that we work with ...

THANK YOU.

A  Christmas message from our Project Manager

As we prepare to close our services for the Christmas holidays and come to the end of what has been a very challenging year for everyone I look back at what we, as a youth club, have achieved despite these challenges.

We have managed to keep our services going non-stop, and even through the lockdowns we provided Zoom and tailored sessions for our young people. For the first time ever we ran a summer programme for eight weeks, the whole of July and August, five days a week. Activities were outside and socially distanced and we continued to support young people through some of the most difficult times of their lives. During December we have taken part in an Advent Windows Trail, and have transformed our front windows to depict a winter snow scene.  This has been a community wide event in College Road along with our neighbours.  Please see pictures and video below.

All of this has had its challenges and staff have had to adapt to new ways of doing things. The first few Trustee meetings on Zoom certainly had their challenges too! But everyone persevered and we were able to continuously provide our usual excellent services to our young people.

Christmas will be very different for everyone this year, including us, and we have had to scale down activities like the Christmas party and have been unable to have the singing events that have been so successful in previous years. But throughout this period it is vital to recognise the importance of being there to support and encourage others around us.

In closing, I would like to wish you all a very happy, safe and peaceful Christmas

Advent Trail Windows
Our Advent trail window was revealed on 8th December, as part of an exciting community event in College Road during December.  Did you see this?  If not, here are a few pictures and a video ...

The windows have been inspired, designed and created by young people and youth workers at JusB. 

Hope you enjoy them!

Watch our Advent  window video

JusB held a competition for young people to be creative and design an activities poster - here is the winning design on the left and the runner up on the right.  Well done!

October half-term project
The Half- Term Youth scheme ran from Wednesday – Friday 28th -30th October.

The young people used their creative skills and worked together to make decorations for the forthcoming Halloween event with bats, spiders and balloons, fairy lights and torches.

Discussed costumes and makeup and shared ideas.

On the day they prepared the pumpkins, created poetry and scary stories which was read out accompanied by mysterious mood music. We danced and sang to Thriller and listened to theme music which set the scene.

 

We also played games such as Wink Murder it was a good turnout which was thoroughly enjoyed. There was a well thought out workforce to produce the labour chains which hung over us like a labyrinth.  See the results below...

SUPPORT THE CHILDREN

Some of our young people who have received Jack Petchey awards for their achievements at JusB during 2020

Well done to all!

Turn up the sound and enjoy listening to the JusB anthem music track composed, performed and recorded by young people at our summer programme ...

Jack Petchey Annual Anthem Competition: The young people were encouraged to think of uplifting words that might be used and how in these changing times, to imagine positive outcomes for their futures, we then created sentences.  One of the young people came up with simple cords on her piano which we have used as a basis for the music. So we practiced in the park accompanied with keyboards
