Brighton Youth Centre is a large, busy voluntary sector Youth Project in the City Centre. Our programme includes open Youth Work, Brighton’s only indoor skatepark and B.fest, Brighton’s annual youth arts festival. As a Charity we own our own building which is well used by ourselves and many partner organisations.
We are always on the lookout for volunteers to join our amazing youth work team. We have a volunteer induction termly, towards the start of the term. We are looking for volunteers for the following days and sessions.
Tuesday Youth Club – 6.30-9.30pm. Tuesday is our lively and dynamic, open drop-in youth club nights. With about 60-80 young people attending per week, there’s lots going on, including basketball, dj-ing, arts, gaming, pool, cooking, with the skate park also open. Session is from 7-9, plus set-up, pack down and evaluation.
Music volunteers. We’ve just had two rehearsal studios built in our basement, so we’re looking for volunteers to run sessions with our young people. Initially during our youth club sessions on Tuesday night.
