Yo! Young Opportunities - is about creating more opportunities for young people.
One of our priorities as a city is for Wolverhampton’s young people to have the best possible start to life. Building their conﬁdence, creating opportunities and giving them the tools they need to succeed. Most importantly, encouraging them to ‘never give up!’.
Local people of all ages tell us we need more opportunities for our children and young people, they’ve told us being healthy, connected and involved are what matter to them.
We listened and we now have Yo!
Yo! provides access to events and services within Wolverhampton that offer opportunities to children, young people and their parents. These opportunities are split into two types – events and services.
