Volunteer with us
At current we are running a youth club every two weeks, which are held on Sundays at Buckingham Youth Centre, partnership funded by Buckinghamshire County Council, Short Breaks Program;
Juniors Session Ages 5 – 12 yr olds: 10am – 12pm
Seniors Session Ages 13 – 19 yr olds: 1pm – 3.30pm
The youth clubs allow us to work more closely with children and young people and in a safe, supportive environment, while teaching more appropriate social communication skills.
We also support young people with issues regarding peer and family relationships to enable to recognise how their behaviour may cause others to react negatively towards them and therefore, how to change their behaviour to gain a response which is more appropriate or positive.
Our aim is to provide relaxed, fun but calm environments which suit the needs of the children and young people we are working with.
We are able to set up activities which cater for specific areas of special needs and disabilities, e.g. we have a range of sensory equipment and can offer regular sessions for families to book or for local groups working with children with more severe sensory needs or learning disabilities to come in and use the centre with the support of our staff and volunteers.
We also have a wide range of games and fun which we support all the club members to join in with. Juniors always enjoy parachute-games to end their session, a chance to play together and have great fun at the same time as being active and safe.
Cost: £3.50 for the first child, £3.00 for the second and £2.00 for the third
(Concessions are available for families on low incomes or income related benefits, please ask and this will be discussed in private)
Bring 50p for the tuck shop which is opened half way through clubs
(Children are all supported to count up their money as they spend it and take turns, cue and speak up clearly as they ask for what they want. These are all essential social communication skills which help all our members to mix with peers and to build their confidence and self-esteem within any other local environment
