We believe in Improving Communication Skills, Increasing Life Skills, Team-building and Developing Confidence.
Purfleet Youth Club is a fun, safe and stimulating environment for young people.
Run by qualified youth workers and dedicated volunteers. Young people can come along and enjoy a range of activities including arts, music, film-making, sports and games. Young people will also have opportunities to attend educational outdoor trips and be part of wider community events and shows during the year.
At Purfleet Youth Club we believe it is important young people try out new ideas and gain confidence through new experiences. We support young people in being creative and inventive within the activities we run and promote the equality of opportunity to gain a fair chance in succeeding positive outcomes.
PYC also facilitates a regular Youth Forum providing an opportunity for the clubs to gather new ideas for on-going activity planning. Discussions and talks by members help form ideas and opinions creating a cooperative and cohesive provision that all members can enjoy. Youth Forums are open to any member of the youth club, come along and ask for a membership form!
