LYPP has established itself as an integral link between the local schools and the wider community for some of the most disengaged young people in Linlithgow and surrounding areas. Every week LYPP is involved in a number of schools in the Linlithgow area running Personal and Social Education classes, games clubs, offering ‘Education, Employment and Training’ guidance and accreditation opportunities. Beyond this you’ll also see the LYPP team engaging with young people at break and lunch times, encouraging a positive attitude towards their learning experience. Within schools we also run and assist in running extracurricular activities for young people and offer volunteering opportunities for peer support and education.
Within the local primary school’s, we deliberately take time to work with those in their final years, lending additional support as they prepare for, and transition in to the secondary school environment.
