Community Service Activity - Holt Youth Project

Holt Young Carers is an important part of the work of the Holt Youth Project, providing respite time for young people who find themselves in a caring role within their home environment.  Our students develop skills and emotional intelligence while helping with activities for young people in the community who have particularly challenging circumstances.
