Our Work

At Youth Opportunity Union we understand the importance of alternative education for the young people in our area. We have years of experience in youth work and our passion is empowering our youth to achieve their goals. We know that for some, school or college isn't ideal! We offer individual, tailored learning programmes to support our young people to achieve through vocational opportunities in our coffee shop, Cafe YOU. 

Experience tells us that your plans are the best plans so if you want an opportunity to realise your own goals and learn in a supportive and encouraging holistic environment then we would love to hear from you!

Get in touch to learn how you can support us in our project and make a difference to young peoples lives.


Come In!

We have been waiting patiently for the moment we could safely open our doors to our lovely customers and we are delighted to welcome you all in! 
Our coffee shop has passed the covid assessment with flying colours and our staff team are dedicated to keeping the cafe as safe as possible. 
So come on in and see us! Your custom supports the learning of the young people accessing our project and is a valuable part of their development.

Youth Opportunity Union is a community based project that supports young people back to gain qualifications and experience and get back on track when they are out of education. Youth Opportunity Union has always maintained a philanthropic set of beliefs and values. Among these are a commitment, transparency, and innovative approach to improving the lives of people in need. Want to get involved?
