Episode 3: ‘Say it how it is’ podcast.

For our third episode of GX ‘Say it how it is’ podcast- Nyla and Shanice were joined by the team of Newport Youth Academy, who shared the with us some of the opportunities they offer for young people in Newport and the surrounding areas.

With so much uncertainty for young people at this current time- we wanted to use our podcast platform as a way to shine light on the opportunities and support available for young people, and Newport Youth Academy are a prime example.

The Newport Youth Academy is an inspirational, life changing provision for the young people of Newport aged between 16 and 18 years old not in employment, education or training (NEET)
