Changing Lives

S1 Club


The S1 Youth Club is a partnership group between South Ayrshire Council CLD, GYT and Community Safety aims to provide young people with a safe and comfortable environment in which they can challenge themselves and progress to new levels. We also aim to provide young people with opportunities to learn new skills, gain new insights and experience, build and maintain positive relationships with friends and youth workers and to increase confidence, resilience and self-esteem.

We deliver this by planning a dynamic and varied youth work program that includes; arts and crafts, cooking and healthy eating, indoor activities such as pool and table tennis, as well as issue based discussion around making healthy choices in life.

Young people are also given the opportunity to participate in wide achievement awards to recognise their learning and the skills they have gained (such as Saltire Awards, Youth Achievement Awards and Dynamic Youth Awards).

Over the past few years S1 club has successfully secured funding for trip, outings and events from take 2 for South Carrick, a local participatory budgeting event.
