YC Hertfordshire – the new name for Youth Connexions
Youth Connexions is now delivering youth work projects and programmes, information, advice, guidance, work related learning, outdoor education and other services under the new name of YC Hertfordshire
The new name reflects national developments and the diversity of projects and programmes delivered to children, young people and adults - in schools, colleges, Children’s Services settings and the community.
Our websites and materials will be updated over the coming weeks and months to reflect this change of name.
