Here at Hillsborough Boys & Girls Club we believe all young people deserve a place to call their own, where they can socialize with their friends in a warm, safe environment, and will be given the chance to fulfill their potential.
We engage young people with positive activities aimed at increasing their self-confidence, developing life skills, encouraging a healthy lifestyle and keeping them safe and happy. This also involves informal education, advice & support and consulting with young people to find out what they want and need to gain from the club.
We are affiliated to Boys & Girls Clubs of South Yorkshire and the National Association of Boys & Girls Clubs. Through this we have access to their activity programme which this year gave our young people the chance to take part in over 30 heavily subsidised trips and residentials including go-karting, kayaking, climbing, ice-skating, mountain biking and many, many more.
The club remains open due to its dedicated team of volunteers and through our links to local Universities and youth organizations we strive to train and develop our staff. This includes encouraging young people from the club to take part in peer mentoring and volunteering to continue theirs and the club’s development.
