Starting from Scratch
Starting up a new youth club, group or project can be a daunting prospect even for a team of experienced youth workers. Here at YCHIOW we can provide you with a tailor-made support package to guide you through from your initial idea to opening your doors to young people on a regular basis.
We can help and support you through the process of starting up by working along side you over an extended period of time to address a wide range of different aspects which can include:
Establishing the need / consultation with young people and the community
Setting up a suitable infrastructure to support the new organisation
Creating a safe and suitable environment
Safe working practices
Training for workers
Recruiting and vetting staff
Developing an appropriate programme of activities
"...the service we received was professional, friendly, highly informative and very supportive."
"I would definitely recommend any groups who have little or no experience in youth work, who want to set up a youth group, to invest in the YCHIOW Starting from Scratch Scheme."
Find out more about a real life experience of Starting from Scratch from a group we have worked with by reading their testimonial.
