Surrey Clubs for Young People

Club – Volunteer Youth Worker

About Surrey Clubs for Young People:
We are a charity that is passionate about supporting communities to provide youth clubs
and we are dedicated to ensuring that young people across Surrey and South London have
access to safe spaces with high quality youth provision.
Youth clubs are safe places to go that allow young people to build positive relationships
outside of what can often be chaotic home lives. We meet young people on their own terms
supporting them to experience new things and grow both in confidence and resilience.
Our aim is to provide enthusiastic youth clubs; a place we can show young people that
someone cares. And offer a range of exciting and challenging opportunities, through which
they can develop into confident young adults. Leading happy lives whilst making a positive
contribution to their wider community and to society.
"My club is somewhere where I feel safe to be with my friends".Club member (15).
"My experience as a volunteer has been amazing, I work with an encouraging team who
are very supportive and passionate about helping young teens. The best part of what I do
is working with the children, they are talented, creative, and generally kind individuals.
This experience has taught me a lot about my strengths and weaknesses, but I wouldn't
change it for the world". Club volunteer.
