Youth Clubs

About Youth Club

Our youth clubs are completely FREE. We welcome all young people age 8 to 18, to join us 5 nights a week.  We have two age groups; Junior Youth Club (age 8 to 12) and Open Access Youth Club (School Year 8+). These run from Monday to Friday every week! Make sure to  check our live timetable to stay updated with session times as these vary depending on weekday.

We have a wide range of activities and events for all attendees to take part in as they please. The activities on offer help young people learn new skills, relax and build confidence and resilience for the future. Furthermore, it is a great way to get involved in the club and form a fun social group outside of school. If you’re curious about our activities or just want to get a feel for our building, you can always come along to youth club and check it out with no membership or booking needed.

 

 

Our Facility

The youth club main area has a games room equipped with the latest Xbox and PlayStation games. A wide range of table games; pool tables, table tennis, air hockey and foosball. We also offer space for more physical sports such as the main hall and football pitches. Next to our main area, youth club also makes use of a range of different facilities to host workshops including a gym that is free to all attendees, a kitchen, a beauty room, IT suite and sports hall.

As always, our staff and volunteers are always on hand to make sure everyone makes the most of the sessions. As a result members feel safe and supported. Furthermore, all staff and volunteers are fully DBS checked

We asked our members why they love coming to Youth Club and here is what they said:

“This is where I feel safe and I have met some nice friends. You can have a laugh with the staff too”

“I feel more grown up at Youth Club”. “All the staff are friendly and fun and have a laugh”

“It’s somewhere to come with my friends and enjoy being away from my mum and dad”

“Hunslet Club means a lot to me. It helps me stay out of trouble and It’s where I can make friends and help young people like me.”

Volunteering and Careers 

Youth Club has a volunteers programme. This is for seniors (year 8+) only. It’s a great way to get workplace experience, take on responsibility and add to your CV. In addition to this, all youth club attendees are welcome to have one to ones with our qualified youth workers.  These one to ones can cover a wide range of topics such as worries related to work, family life or school, which might be preventing young people from reaching their full potential. We also have a ‘Job Shop’ session where you can learn all things workplace, personal statements, job interviews and life skills. As a volunteer you can:

  • Help out during club events such as the summer gala.
  • Help lead junior youth sessions.
  • Take on leadership and independent roles appointed by youth club staff.

To become a youth volunteer simply ask one of our youth workers during youth club or Email: Dhall@hunsletclub.org.uk

Need To Talk? We Offer Mental Health Support and Careers Advice!

Getting a 1 to 1

t every youth club session, we have qualified youth and support workers, who are always on hand to offer any help you might need. This could be an informal discussion about anything that might be worrying you. Some topics our youth workers have been able to provide support with are: problems at school or at home, drug and alcohol abuse, family issues, trauma, depression, anxiety, eating disorders, struggling with self identification (for example sexuality and gender), bullying and much more. The scope of topics they are able to discuss are endless. It is most important to our staff, that young people have a place to talk, discuss their problems and seek the relevant help. All 1 to 1 sessions are completely, confidential and judgement free. To start speaking with one of our youth team or get something off your chest simply come along to youth club and ask for a 1 to 1 or E-mail Dhall@hunsletclub.org.uk.

Careers Advice

We host job shop sessions every week. These are available to anyone 13 to 18, who might be thinking about the future of their career or education. During job shop, we can work on CV writing, literacy skills, personal statements and job interview techniques. We can even open up a discussion if you are unsure about your next steps. We can provide advice and offer guidance based on your own personal strengths and interests. Job shop sessions can be booked by enquiring at youth club or emailing Dhall@hunsletclub.org.uk. These also don’t need to be one to one sessions. We can conduct these workshops to individuals, pairs or a small group, so why not come along with your friends.
