Youth Work Volunteer

  • VO42555


Description

Youth clubs are split into either junior or senior clubs, sometimes they can be gender specific. Young people are encouraged to make new friends and try new games and activities. We encourage them to get involved in programme planning. Young people help with snacks. Youth clubs operate within term time and are open access provision. Sometimes we run short projects ie. art. We also run holiday programmes (funding permitting). All staff and volunteers contribute to the evaluation process.
