Haddenham Youth Cafe (the Junior Youth Club) has been running successfully for two-and-a-half years. It takes place at the Y&CC from 4pm — 6pm on Tuesdays during term time, and is led by Aylesbury Youth for Christ workers.
The Youth Cafe is funded by the local church, to provide a social meeting place for young people in Haddenham, especially as there would otherwise be little provision for this age group in the village. Participation is open to all youngsters in the appropriate age group and it is a secular activity offered as a service to the community.
In order to continue to operate fully in September, the organisers are seeking additional helpers. Can you spare time to help, either every week, or on a rota basis? You don't have to be a "born youth leader" — the roles and responsibilities are quite practical and relate to kitchen-based needs, providing refreshments and washing up.
Parents of young (or soon-to-be) teenagers might see this as a helpful input to the community, perhaps?
If you can offer a little help or would like to know more, please contact Dianne (291219) or Barbara ( 290642)
