Youth clubs come in all shapes and sizes and there is no set formula. We believe the youngsters should be involved in the planning, researching, decision making, fundraising and running of their club. Empowering young people and giving them responsibility creates a sense of ownership and commitment and will ensure we are providing programs relevant to the clubs members.
We have a youth team working with us too, they have been instrumental in pushing the project forward. It is intended that the youth club have youth mentors who together with the adults will promote a positive and supportive mind-set, inspiring young people to be proud of their club and their community as a whole.
They will be encouraged to improve the local community and actively seek ways to improve their local area. This will create young people who are proud of where they live and help them empower others to take pride in the local environment.
