Volunteering can be a really great experience.

The club is open from 7.15pm to 9pm (staff arrive from 6.30pm to set up) with year 6 students on Tuesdays; year 7 on Wednesdays; year 8 on Thursdays. The members are offered a wide variety of activities including sports, computer games, arts and crafts, dance, music, cooking and lots more: some young people just want to chill out with their friends.
