The first Somali Girls Youth Club in Camden was established in 2008 by the SYDRC. The main aim of this youth club is to give an opportunity for Somali young girls who have difficulties in fitting into mainstream British society and help them to achieve their potential through signpost, guidance and keep them away from crime and antisocial behaviour.
This also encourages the young girls to be in education and integrate positively with wider society and take part in mainstream youth activities. The youth club delivers a range of activities and opportunities for girls in a culturally sensitive environment with the aim of encouraging more young women into mainstream provision such as education, training, employment and community work. Many young girls from Minority Ethnic backgrounds are deprived of opportunities available to them due to barriers and lack of information and encouragement.
Our youth workers use a range of extra-curricular and recreational activities to empower young women and inspire them to realise their aspirations we also operate a number of other activities in our youth club including group discussions, cooking, empowerment training and team building activities. Volunteering and training programmes play a central role in our organisation in promoting community involvement, providing positive role models, and recruiting new female volunteer youth workers and participants.
Our young girls also benefit weekly sessions which give them a chance to:
