The Oasis Youth Project has commenced its latest project in conjunction with the Belfast Giants. Around 20 young people from 7 different nationalities are participating.

The young people met with a representives from The Giants and then enjoyed a social night together at The Odyssey Bowl. They now have some hard work ahead of them as their next task is to make a presentation to 2 members of The Giants team, explaining who they are as a community.

• Make physical activity fun, so creating a more positive image and experience of physical activity for the young people.

• Celebrate the strengths in the young people, thus developing self esteem and confidence.

• Create greater self awareness in the young people regarding their responses to difference, stereotypes and prejudice, to enhance their ability to understand and respect difference.

• Develop awareness in the young people about their what we their motivational styles and mechanisms they can use to maintain motivation beyond the programme

• Enable young people to experience a new sport on ice.

The project highlight will be on 26th March when the young people will experience a VIP day on the ice with the Giants and attend the final game of the season at The Giants home venue, The Odyssey Arena.

The project is supported by Housing Executive, Craigavon Borough Council & Unite Against Hate.
