Shakespeare Street Youth Club
All about our club
I’m Sarah from Shakespeare Street Youth Club. We are a small club based in Maryhill, Glasgow.Our club has 4 main staff that work there who work so hard to keep our small club running.
Sarah- Youth Development
Peggy- Youth worker
Rachel- Youth worker
Our young volunteers have all been part of the club since primary 1 and continue to take part in their own clubs and help at the younger clubs. Many of these young people’s parents attended the club when they were younger.
We all have the same focus on being able to continue to provide but also expand the services we provide in the local area.
Maryhill is one of the most deprived areas in Scotland, with children and young people facing many disadvantages. We provide a safe and fun environment for children and young people to attend.
With any funding we are looking to provide vital services to allow the children and young people to take part in things they may never normally get a chance to.
Such as residential trips to outdoor learning centres.
Continuing to take them on day trips during the school holidays.
Our vision is to expand on the things that are important tackling food poverty, health and wellbeing, inclusion and also having a safe and happy environment for The children and young People to flourish in.
Shakespeare is and has been at the heart of the community for 97 years and this year almost faced closure if it wasn’t for the community, the staff and young people of the club.
We hope you have enjoyed learning more about our small club and thank you for helping in anyway you can.
