• We provide a safe space for young people aged 11 to 19, away from the streets. Trained Youth Workers supervise weekly generic and structured activities focusing on life skills. Once a year we also take 12 young people on a weekend-long confidence building Residential to experience the outdoors and benefit from vital life skills development. 

 

  • We engage local young people through activities and discussions in order to build a good rapport and create a trusting relationship between the young people and Youth Workers. 

 

  • We offer Youth Club Members the opportunity to decide where they would like to go for their annual day trip.   

 

  • We involve local young people by consulting them and seeking their views as contribution towards decision making which affects them. An example of this is their input in how Vestry Playground should be improved and what activities they want us to consider during Quarterly Planning Sessions.

 

  • We enable and support local young people by offering one to one mentoring, which can help them through a challenging transition in their life. The guidance and support can be related to education, employment, training, liaising with parents and carers or outside agencies such as Colleges, Schools, Social Services, the Home Office or Welfare Benefits Services.

 

  • We empower our Youth Club members to take more responsibility by helping to fundraise and volunteering in the community. Examples of this includes the volunteer support of 11 Youth Club Members who helped to raise £373 at the Walthamstow Village Festival on 19th September 2015. 7 young people have signed up to do a Fundraiser on 28th November 2015, to raise money for our youth provision. 10 young people have volunteered to help out at the forthcoming Senior Citizen's Lunch on Monday 21st December 2015.

 

  • We acknowledge the tremendous support of our Youth Club Members at the End of Year Celebration through nominations and recognition.
