Girls Only Youth Club
What? Our aim for this project is to give Girls from the age of 14+ the opportunity to have fun , get involved and enjoy themselves by taking part in a variety of activities in a relaxed atmosphere that allows them to simply be themselves! Whether it be dance, nail painting, cheerleading or cooking there will be something on offer to get all girls positively engaging in a variety of sports and activities.
Where? The location of our Youth Club is at Queen Street Community Center in the Anglesey area of Burton. This is an area where incidents of crime and anti social behaviour are slightly higher, and the level of social deprivation is much higher. The purpose of our Youth Club is to try and positively engage with the young indivduals within this area and help them make the right decisions by engaging them in something fun.
Why? There are many resons that girls may not wish to join in with sports or activities, this could be linked to having low self esteem or a negative expereince in the past. However we want to ensure that all girls have an oppurtunity to enjoy themselves and get stuck in with sports that they choose to explore. Through taking part in a variety of sports, girls will learn life skills such as teamwork, leadership and confidence which will beneift them greatly throughout their lives.The Girls will be given the opuurtunity to brainstorm ideas for their youth club so that it is suited to them and their needs. They will also be encouraged to think outside the box so that we can work on providing them with exciting activities and help them create amazing memories!
