NYPO in 1998

Newham Young People Online was established in 1998 as an project for young people ages 11 to 18. It encouraged young people using digital media to develop conversations and to work together online and in live meetings. The project ran as part of Newham Community Education Service until 2010. During that time the involvement of members in its development was a key feature. From 2010 to 2017 the project and its website continued to exist to support courses and workshops run, as part of Newham’s Summer School initiative, by the project’s founder Gavin Sealey.

While the project no longer has an active community of young members and developers, Gavin continues to run courses for children and continues to be the caretaker of the NYPO website.
