    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 open to any young person – as long as they live in a West Kent home. To sign up, email, complete the form below, or send us a message on our Facebook page. 

    Our courses are:

    • Guitar for beginners plus

      Starts Monday 24 May 2021, 6pm-7pm. 

      Following on from our successful guitar for beginners course earlier in the year, we'll now hold our second guitar course, ‘beginners plus’

      If you were on our beginners course and want to carry on learning guitar, or if you've had guitar lessons before and would like to pick it up again, this is the course for you.

      Places 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).
