Youth Clubs Hampshire & Isle of Wight has been working to enable young people to fulfil their true potential since 1942. Our continuing success has been largely due to the ongoing support of “sponsors”, these are individuals, organisations, county and district councils, grant giving bodies and our fantastic fundraising committee.
Our work is aimed at the Social, Personal and Physical development of young people using an informal educative approach. What makes youth work so effective is the young people’s attendance is entirely voluntarily and they can therefore “vote with their feet” if they don’t find what is on offer fun, challenging and rewarding. And what we offer ranges from opportunities to learn how to get on with a wide range of other young people to taking some positive action to enhance the community in which they live.
Companies, Businesses and Groups can help by:- including YCHIOW as a charity under the give as you earn scheme, choosing to sponsor an event involving young people, choosing to sponsor a fundraising event, by making a donation. (in the past companies have made donations of staff time and resources as well as money).
County & District Councils can help by providing attendees at our Board Meetings to ensure the needs of the young people from their areas are being addressed. They can also help by Commissioning work from YCHIOW.
