In the Mix Project (ITMP) is a local registered charity (no. 1161486) that provides youth and community enhancement works in Somerset. We endeavour to provide services that are accessible to all with a focus on youth work and providing for the younger generation.

ITMP provides professional youth work support and advice to young people, relating to issues prevalent to themselves, their communities and their environment. We offer youth provision based on core youth work principles and values to young people living and working in Somerset and further afield.

Our programmes provide informal educational activities and positive opportunities that enhance learning alongside personal, social, emotional and professional development, as well as expanding skills and experiences, boosting self-esteem and confidence while promoting teamwork and citizenship. We are flexible in our approach, ensuring that the activities that we offer are relevant to the young people we work with and measurable through specific outputs and evaluation models.
