Centre for Youth and Community Development
The Educational Centres Association is delighted to welcome a new member, the Centre for Youth and Community Development, Lutonâ€™s largest BME organisation, situated in the heart of the city where it responds to the wide variety of ethnic minorities which enrich Lutonâ€™s culture. The organisation provides activities from pre-school to fourth age participants.
Although struck by the cuts common to all charities this year, CYCDâ€™s director, Mir Juma, is not daunted. â€œOur plans include growth, even in these bad timesâ€, he says. â€œThe worst forecast is to stand still, but that is the worst forecast.â€ One area for development will be the adult learning agenda, including both formal and informal learning. The organisation will be using the ECAâ€™s expertise and network to help them on their way.
