CARE LINK WEST MIDLANDS
"Working to Promote Refugees Inclusion and Eliminate Isolation"
The Youth club is designed to enable all young people, ranging from children to teenagers, to reach their full potential as caring and responsible citizens. It offers different activities to help children learn and grow, have ongoing relationships with other young people and adults and give hope and opportunity for their future. Most of all, the youth club activities are a way to help young people have fun and make new friends.
Under this programme, a number of activities are delivered:
Holiday Play Scheme
During the school holidays Care Link West Midlands runs activities ranging from sports such as Tennis and Football to a mix of fun and games (skipping, handball, football, ball boys and girls, squash, netball, volleyball, basketball, table tennis, bowling, ice skating , outing, tag football, the Maypole, blind bock, tongue twisters, human knot, trust lean, etc.).
Come Together Events
The organisation runs on a regular basis ‘come together events’ that bring young people from all backgrounds together to work to try to reduce barriers to harmonious living, enhance positive relationships and enable young people to take their place as active citizens and peace builders within their own communities and beyond.
The organization runs weekly youth sessions which provide a safe space for young people to meet each other and participate in a range of activities such as English lessons and crafts. The sessions include relevant interactive workshops and information sessions, such as first aid, access to education/university, dance and drama, and health promotion advice.
The drop-in centre work also includes individual case-work, advocacy, mentoring, guidance and signposting to other relevant services and organisations in the City as well as delivering employability skills to young people Not in Education, Employment or Training (NEET).
