Young Leaders Programme

Our Young Leaders Programme is aimed at supporting those older members, who have showed an interest in volunteering at the Youth Club, to develop their personal and social skills within a professional work setting. This programme aims to overcome 2 major barriers that young people have told us prevents them from gaining meaningful employment. Firstly it gives them vital work experience essential for competing in today’s highly competitive job market and secondly it gives young people access to a professional reference required by potential employers.

Our Young Leaders programme has gone from strength to strength and we now have over 6 regular volunteers all of whom play a crucial role in the day to day life of ECYC and all of whom are undertaking some form of nationally recognised Youth Work Qualification. In addition to this many of our volunteers have gone on to develop their own projects within the club and raised money to buy resources for their respective projects which range from Photography to Bike maintenance.
