About

Since 2013, we have provided a popular weekly youth club on Friday evenings during term time. Membership costs just 50p a week. We also run a tuck shop, with any profits used to buy resources for the youth club.

 

Every week the club offers free-flow activities, such as air hockey, table tennis, board games, music and crafts. We also provide issue-based activities, which are delivered in a fun and engaging way. For example, we might talk about bullying using stop frame animation. Or, we may cover healthy eating by making some tasty nutritious food. All the activities are based on our members’ interests and needs.

 

The club is run by Katherine Clarke and the Mendip YMCA, and supported by a number of dedicated volunteers. All staff and volunteers hold enhanced DBS checks and have received safeguarding training.

The club is partly funded by Somerset Youth and Community Service and the Glastonbury Town Council Youth Provision.

In 2015, the club was awarded the ‘Safe and Welcoming’ benchmark from Somerset Youth and Communities Service. The benchmark ensures the club is completely safe with regards to accessibility, health & safety and safeguarding.

 

On the first Friday in a new term, the club is closed for planning. Club reps are invited to join the youth workers and volunteers to let us know what they would like from their club.

Several of our members also represent the club on the Glastonbury Youth Council. All members are encouraged to get involved in the wider community.

 

We send out a dedicated Youth Club newsletters once every half term, this is a chance for parents and guardians to see what we have been up to and what is planned for the coming weeks.
