A summer of fun and opportunity is being lined up for children and young people in Wolverhampton – and local organisations are being urged to get involved.

The Yo! summer programme will take place during the school holidays and offer another extensive range of events for young Wulfrunians and their families.

Last summer more than 12,000 people joined in the fun and the City of Wolverhampton Council is calling on organisations to submit details of their activities so they can be included in this year's programme.

They will be featured on the Yo! Wolves website which had tens of thousands of visitors last year and will once again showcase the hundreds of events across the city, many free of charge, designed to keep children and young people active and entertained over the holidays. There will also be a range of activities for children and young people with special educational needs and disabilities.
It builds on the council’s commitment to create more opportunities for children and young people, backed by multi-million-pound investment.
Councillor Beverley Momenabadi, the City of Wolverhampton Council's Cabinet Member for Children and Young People, said: "We want to ensure our city's children and young people have another brilliant summer this year and so are working closely with providers across Wolverhampton to deliver a summer Yo! Wolves programme which is bigger and better than ever before.

"The Yo! Wolves website will bring together the very best activities taking place in Wolverhampton for children and young people – both paid for and free of charge – and I urge local organisations to submit details of their events as soon as possible so they can be a part of it."

To get involved, organisations simply need to visit Yo! Wolves Event Submission Form and submit details of their events for inclusion on the website.
