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!
This club is for 5-7 year old children
This club is for 8-12 year old children
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.
