Meet some of our youth at the centre and their success stories with AFiUK's youth club project Funded by the PCC

Name: Isaac

What difference has the project made to you personally?

" It has built my character personally, having a lot more confidence speaking in larger crowds and mainly working in a team. Secondly, it has increased my patience.

 

The workshop that had a big impact on me was in goal setting and motivation. It has made me rethink about what I really want in life and how to push myself in reaching it. "

 

Do you have anything else to add what you have experienced so far?

"I would suggest having these workshops added in schools as it will definitely benefit generations.

 

 

Name: Glorie

What difference has the project made to you personally?

" It has improved my confidence in leading other youth with activities and was also appointed a youth worker. The workshops have been really interesting and opened my mind to things such as appreciating motivational skills, resilience, and positive thinking.

The managing anxiety and negative thoughts workshop was especially very useful in a way that shows how your thoughts affect how you feel which affects how you perform physically"

Do you have anything else to add to what you have experienced so far?

"The workshops are very different from what is taught in schools and I have been able to invite friends to share the experience."

 

All our volunteers and staff are trained in Safeguarding and Early Help Assessment. 

 

In all our work with children and youth, and with parents, we focus on family safety and wellbeing.

We offer parenting support in 1-1 sessions with individual parents or in groups where we discuss with parents available interventions available to support their children's needs.

With parental consent, we make referrals to support agencies or we empower parents to engage with agencies to improve outcomes for their children.
