Youth Drop in
We host a variety of events that engage and empower young people.
The Ayr Ark is a youth project situated down by the Citadel in Ayr. We seek to engage with young people through events, outreach and schools work to equip young people with relevant skills and training to empower them to reach for a more positive future.
Our goal is to provide a safe alternative to the many peer pressures that young people are faced with. The Ark is open every Friday as a youth drop in centre for 11-18 year olds. This is a safe place for young people to come to where they can have fun with their friends, listen to good music and play games.
Our School Mentoring programme is always expanding and adapting with our involvement in our 4 local secondary schools. We currently mentor 22 young people and have a waiting list. Our staff are trained to deliver one to one mentoring and Dynamic Award Workshops to help support young people.
Please explore our website to find out a bit more about what we do and contact us if you have any questions or queries.
The Ark provides a mentoring programme in partnership with local secondary schools, supporting young people whose personal circumstances are significantly affecting their education, mental health or wellbeing. We are currently mentoring pupils across 4 schools and we have a waiting list. The programme provides one-to-one support tailored to the individual needs of each young person. Our mentors are staff who work within The Ark and as such can provide a direct positive influence to the young people from out-with their circle of friends and family, with our mentors not having the pressures of supporting many other pupils unlike their class teachers in the school environment.
