Our Youth Groups
SAYiT run three youth groups for LGBT+ or questioning young people between the ages of 11-25.
- Younger Fruitbowl
- Older Fruitbowl
At groups we have a range of social opportunities, support and activities including art making, film nights, games, quiz nights, guests visitors and the opportunity to speak to our team about any issues or difficulties.
11-17 year olds meet in a central location on a Thursday evening.
Younger Fruitbowl 11-14 years old Thursdays 4:00pm – 6:00pm.
Older Fruitbowl 15-17 years old Thursdays 5:30pm – 7:30pm.
Between 5.30pm and 6.00pm group members of older and younger Fruitbowl come together to get some snacks and chill out which can ease the transition for those approaching 15 years old.
18-25 years old meet in a central location monthly on a Wednesday evening.
Prism meets monthly on a Wednesday evening from 6:00pm – 8:00pm in Sheffield City Centre.
We design and offer great activities and workshops that are requested by members at our youth groups. In 2019 we had people come in to deliver things like, spoken word and drama workshops, had animals come visit the groups, made tye die tops, we also had educational session around autism, trans awareness, LGBT+ history and self care. We do games nights, film nights, chill out sessions and much more!
Over the school holidays we plan projects and events like visiting the theatre, cinema, exhibitions, arts and crafts, trips etc. We currently have some of our work up in the Weston Park Museum from our 2019 Easter Project!
