About Youth Club

Larne YMCA Youth Club is renowned locally for its professionalism, diversity and opportunities it affords for youth. EA have rated the provision as Outstanding in the last 2 moderation visits.

We operate a five-night a week service (Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday) working with young people from as young as Primary 3. The provision is funded by the Education Authority.

A number of projects such as Dare to Swim, Good Relations and Health-based programmes are delivered throughout the year. Project content is shaped by participants’ needs and requirements.

We are excited to introduce a drug and alcohol support service as an extension to our youth support. This will include targeted small group work, 1:1 support and the facilitation of a local drug and alcohol network. Additionally, a term time homework club will be available from April 2021.

Youth Club operates with a Senior Youth Work Manager, Youth Support Worker in Charge, sessional staff, volunteers, junior leaders and helpers who work with over 250 young people a week.
