CLUB4US : Youth and Children’s Work

We have three youth and children’s clubs which run on a weekly basis. These clubs are primarily targeted at black/minority ethnic children and young people living in the North of Edinburgh however other local young people are also more than welcome to attend if spaces are available!

MINI-STARS CLUB

This club is for 5-7 year old children

JUNIOR-STARS CLUB

This club is for 8-12 year old children

YOUNG-STARS CLUB

This club is for 12-16 year old young people

Last term our clubs took part in a wide range of activities including: baking, puppet making, drama, Indian dancing, beat boxing, games and quizzes.

Our clubs also went on a number of different trips including: The Fun Factory, Rock Climbing Wall, Bowling and The Maritime Museum!

Each club is led by a team of two experienced and approachable sessional workers and a volunteer worker.

Our aims for CLUB4US are as follows:

  • To support children and young people in gaining confidence and self-esteem in order to deal with issues that affect them
  • To offer opportunities for children and young people to build a social network, assisting them to overcome isolation through building contacts with other minority ethnic children and young people
  • To encourage children and young people to integrate with all sections of the community, feeling safer in the community that they live
  • To offer opportunities for children and young people to gain new skills in a range of areas widening their interest and options to make positive changes in their lives that assist them to plan for the future

We are always looking for new members – Come and give it a try.
