Come along to our youth club!
We run a youth club every Monday and Wednesday evening for 11 to 19- year-olds at Britannia Village Hall. Tuesday evenings we run our youth club at Royal Wharf Community Dock for 9-14 year olds and on Tuesday and Thursday we run football sessions on Britannia Village Green for 9-16 year olds.
These sessions are completely free of charge and all are welcome. You can simply turn up, and there is no need to register in advance.
If you’re a local young person (or their parent or carer) with a question about the youth club before coming along, please contact us by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
What to expect at youth club
There’s a wide range of activities on offer. Most weeks we have football, weights, table tennis, card and board games, Xbox and Wii, and laptops for revision and research.
We also regularly run other activities such as fencing, arts and crafts and cooking as well as special dance activities and ‘make your own music’ sessions with trained musicians.
Our youth club is open for ages 11-19 6-9pm on Mondays, and Thursdays. Ages 9-14 at Royal Wharf Community Dock on Tuesdays 5:30-7pm.
We regret we can’t accept under 9s at youth club. Different times apply during school holidays.
We also run after-school football sessions from 4:30-5:30pm on both Tuesday and Thursday for 9-16s.
Around twice a year, we also organise special events. These are led mainly by our young people. Come along, get involved and gain some great experience!
Britannia Village summer scheme
For three weeks every summer, we organise a popular holiday scheme in Britannia Village. It’s an exciting and varied programme that offers young people opportunities to connect, explore, learn and reach beyond their comfort zones. In previous years, around 300 young people have taken part.
Our programme typically runs for three weeks of the school holiday. Our team of young leaders will decide the details of the programme and we expect activities to include multi-sports, arts and crafts, performing arts, digital activities, topical workshops and days out.
If you’re interested in attending, please contact us from June onwards by emailing email@example.com.
Thanks to regular funding from the Jack Petchey Foundation, each year we usually organise at least four trips outside the area for young people aged 8 to 25.
Our young people make the decisions on where we go. Past trips have included visits to the Lee Valley White Water Centre, Jump Giants and Flipout! Ask at youth club for more information.
