    Our youth services team are setting up online courses for young West Kent residents across Kent - the best bit? They're completely free!

    The sessions will be run by experts in each area, all with years of experience. There will be a West Kent youth worker in every session to make sure those taking part have a familiar face there with them.

    The courses are due to start in January, and are open to any young person – as long as they live in a West Kent home. To sign up, email youthservices@wkha.org.uk, complete the form below, or send us a message on our Facebook page. 

    Our courses are:

    • Guitar for beginners

      Starts Thursday 7 January 2021, 6.30pm-7.30pm. Course runs for ten weeks.

      There are six places available on the course, which will be offered on a first come, first served basis. The courses are completely free, but you will need to be a West Kent tenant and have your own guitar (but please let us know if you don't have a guitar but would still like to join - we may be able to help).
