Youth Club Support
The My Trust support the many amazing people who give their time, either paid or as volunteers, to run youth clubs and groups across Kent & Medway.
Much of our support is open to anyone that wants to take advantage of it but we also offer clubs and groups the opportunity to affiliate to the Young Kent Service. Member clubs also enjoy a number of benefits.
Information, Advice & Guidance regarding most aspects of running a youth club or group is available in the Youth Club Pack given to all clubs at the point of affiliation. Clubs are also supported by The My Trusts Youth Work Manager Sheila Heffernan and Youth and Club Development Worker Miriam Biggin.
