Friday Youth Drop-in Helper

  • VO60356


Description

The Friday night sessions are very popular with young people and more help and support will increase the success of this. The drop-in sessions at EYC enable young people to join with others in the area and eliminate some of the boredom and subsequent negative behaviours that they can find themselves in. We run theme nights and other activities ranging from cooking, sports and playing pool. A driver and car owner would be very useful to enable young people to attend sessions if transport is a barrier.

Organisation aims and objectives
