Youth Work

  • VO38751


Description

Supporting youth workers and getting alongside young people to help out in activities. This is an opportunity for people within the community to engage with their local young people and give them somewhere to go i.e. stop them gathering in the streets. Get involved in educational activities and trips that we provide. General help is welcome, as is bringing any special skills, e.g. arts, crafts, sport, music, etc. The Youth Café is open 5 evenings per week (M.T.T.F.S) where the young people can take advantage of a number of activities, and have access to information, including a gaming system, music, television, snacks, and a range of soft drinks.

Organisation aims and objectives

Boomerang was set up in 1999 to provide a safe, comfortable and friendly centre in the heart of the community to stimulate community involvement and development with an aim to community regeneration. The project provides a user led centre assisting a variety of groups with varying interests to increase confidence, promote skills and strengthen individual identity and responsibilities.
