We want our young people to take ownership of the youth programme at HYCC, supported by our youth worker and volunteers. We want young people to feel engaged and proud of their youth centre and to be enthusiastic participants in their community. We want to create a journey of learning through fun: from signing up to youth club as a 10 year old – to becoming a young volunteer in the teen years – to becoming part of the leadership team as an adult. We have so many good ideas to roll out with our young people. We will become leading lights on youth work, mental and physical health for young people, working closely with other youth organisations to make HYCC a hive of opportunities for young people.
HYCC is open to the community, we take our role as a venue to come together and celebrate with loved ones very seriously. We are also keen to nurture other charity and interest groups and we strive to keep HYCC affordable to all. Engagement from the community is paramount and we persevere in building up the youth centre’s image as an exceptional venue.
Our Aim for Funding
We need to build a strong and sustainable organisation, able to withstand changes in income from any one source and the possibility of unforeseen expenses. We will work to share our vision with like-minded grant givers and create long term partnerships. For our project to work we need the support from past grant giving bodies and new relationships to be forged.
We will protect and expand our income from hiring out the centre by making sure that we run an effective service.
