Leatherhead Youth Project is a local charity passionate about helping young people. We offer innovative youth services in Leatherhead and across Mole Valley which aim to respond to local needs and help young people to be safe, happy and making positive changes in their lives.
We have a diverse range of projects and activities on offer in order to provide long-term support for ages 7-19, including BFree Youth Café, Counselling & Mentoring, Schools Work, Sports Projects, International trips and offering qualifications such as Duke of Edinburgh and AQA Awards.
