YPU is a sub group of MACA

It was founded in 2014 by three friends from diverse backgrounds. Their friendship not their differences saw them create this group. Safiya, Chris and Holly’s vision was to form a group for the youth of Medway. Sadly in 2015 Safiya passed away but her legacy lives on. During the annual Young Black Achievers Awards YPU awards are given to honour her memory.

We now need the next generation of Medway’s young people to take part and grow YPU. We are currently working in conjunction with a USDD dance academy to create a HipHop Opera in 2020! We are also hoping to re start our Saturday school. Saturday school will offer a safe place to discuss and learn about heritage, culture and practical support where possible with maths, English and ICT. If this all sounds like something you would like to get involved in then get in contact with us.
