STARTER CHEF App by YMCA Cardiff

 foto4

Last Friday, Youth Cymru staff attended to the launch of the new app STARTER CHEF, a recipe app that has been created by a group of Young Carers from YMCA Cardiff.

The app lets you choose your favourite meal, create a list with the food you need to buy at the supermarket, follow the steps and tips about “how to cook it” and enjoy your meal!

Great project to support families. At the same time, young careers gain life skills cooking and developing this kind of projects.

Because cooking can be fun, cheap and healthy!

We have already taken a look to the App and it is amazing!

Are you ready to be a chef?  Download the Starter Chef App for free and try it!

The App is now available on App Store (iTunes) click here

It will be soon on Google Play

Thanks YMCA Cardiff for the fantastic App and nice event!

Hustings Event – Infinity Trampoline Park

Not the Usual Hustings

affect their daily lives.

As part of this project, there will be a ‘Not the Usual Hustings’ event where young people aged 16 to 25 can ask
candidates from each of the main political parties why young people should vote for them in the forthcoming
Welsh Assembly Elections. The event is hosted by BBC Newsbeats Steffan Powell and will provide young
people with an opportunity to visit a ‘market place’ to find out more about politics. On the evening the
‘Politically Correct App’ will be launched which has been designed by young people to explain how politics
affects young people. The event will finish with an opportunity for young people and possibly the AM candidates
to test out the trampolines!
