Chilling out after the challenges of school is what the After School Club is all about. Young people aged 11 – 18 years are welcome to the club which is free and is on during term time for a couple of hours after school - COVID permitting!
COVID has meant that we can't currently offer a "drop-in" provision to our Youth Centres, however, you can still get involved with KA-nect.
KA-nect is our COVID safe After-school, allowing us to reconnect with those who previously attended. You will need to book your place and commit to the half-term to keep everyone as safe as possible, but hey - that means we get to see you every week!!
What can you expect from our centres?
We have two Youth Centres, one in Alton and one in Petersfield, both of which offer a safe, fun environment to chill out with your mates, perhaps over a game of pool, table tennis or air hockey. We also have an xbox and our Youth Workers are never short on game, craft or activity ideas.
Each month our activities and games are linked by a common theme encouraging young people to have fun and create friendships whilst bringing an important subject to their attention. Some of the topics we have covered in the past are climate change, staying safe, positive mental health, healthy eating and setting goals.
In the summer, we run Holiday Hangouts, and Level Up which is a transition programme aimed at those moving into Year 7.
Our Youth Workers are also on hand to provide support and a listening ear to any young person. Maybe you would like to discuss something that is happening in your life at the moment?
You can speak to a Youth Worker during your session or alternatively just click the red "Let's Chat" button at the bottom right of the screen and leave us a message. One of our Youth Workers will then be in touch.
