The Xcel Project is based on three core themes - Activity, Employability and Leadership. These underpin all our projects and services. These include holiday programmes, youth club, youth cafe, drop-in nights and collaborative projects with local schools. Xcel’s Youth Information Centre offers safe internet access, social interaction, support and advice as well as information on a wide range of issues.


Our activities form the basis of everything we do. We offer opportunities for young people of all ages to engage with the project, have fun, learn and develop themselves. We are always looking at new ideas for projects and activities.


Leadership is an important part of the Xcel Project. The majority of our volunteers are under the age of 25 and we also want to give young people who have engaged in the project previously the chance to stay involved.


We want to challenge young people to look at what they are going to do when they leave school or exit further education. We will encourage them to think about their future and provide them with the information and skills they need.
