Members pay £2 per club night and all money goes to providing activities and materials for the club.
Emma organised an initial meeting in May 2010 to discuss the idea with local residents (adults and children) at the Kings Hall Community Centre. The positive response she got was all the impetus she needed to arrange a public meeting in June 2010.
Fifty people turned up - children and adults. Lesley Jones, local labour councillor, Atim Abrams of BrAVA, Jacqueline Smith from Brent Grants Office and Marcia Griffiths from Neighbourhood Working Team all came along. The children completed surveys about the youth club and adults completed volunteer sheets. It was a great response!
Atim at BrAVA advised Emma in the early months about how to set up a youth club. Local Ward Councillors have been very supportive of the idea and more recently Dimple Khagram at North London Professional Academy Ltd has provided us with CVs of youth worker trainees interested in volunteering.
Our main aim is to keep children on the right track, providing them with a safe, supportive and learning environment and give them opportunities to experience as wide a range of interests as possible.
In having their own Kids Committee we encourage the children to take
ownership of and responsibility for the youth club and make it their own.
We bring in adults with specific skills and expertise to teach the children new skills such as in sport, drama, arts,
business etc. We also hope to organise trips to places of interest and meet up with children/volunteers from other youth clubs.
Club nights are run by Gillian Archer, a trained youth worker, Sina Mensah and Shaun Bangard, trainee youth workers and supervised by parent volunteers. All have undergone CRB checks and are working voluntarily for us. We are grateful to them all for their support. All volunteers
receive training and follow our code of conduct and policies referred to in our constitution.
We would also like to thank our local Sainsburys in Willesden Green for their generous donation of £500 for fruit and drinks on Club nights. This is part of their and the Club's healthy eating initiative.
