What is Champ Youth?
Started in January 2014, our weekly youth club is held on Friday evenings for young people aged 11 to 16. The youth club is run by our trained team members and volunteers. The young people are encouraged to take part in activities such as trampolining and multi-sport, cookery, media etc. It helps the youths socialise and gain confidence in a safe and supportive environment. The club operates during term time.
Why is the programme needed?
The club provides an opportunity for young people with ASD to socialise, relax and enjoy trying new activities in a safe and supportive environment. The club also provides respite to families for an evening each week.
Who does it help?
Youth club is for young people aged 11 to 16 with ASD, and other issues like social isolation, anxiety and issues in school.
When do we run it?
The club is run on Tuesdays and Thursdays (6:00 - 8.30pm) during term-time.
Where is it located?
Our Youth Clubs happen in North and South Belfast
