Springfield Club for Young People aim as its main purpose will be to provide a centre for young people and the wider community to enhance and support individual’s needs.
To operate in the ward of Springfield (covering additional areas under Hackney Council and beyond) and support young people to develop volunteering initiatives that address community needs and, in benefiting others, provide them with a sense of citizenship and community responsibility.
To encourage the involvement of young people from all sections of the community (especially those who are at risk of social exclusion) and ensure that all have equal opportunity to participate regardless of gender, religious and ethnic background, disability or sexual preference (or any other factor that may result in discrimination and prejudice).
To foster and develop increased learning and development opportunities for young people by empowering them to contribute, steer initiatives and lead their own youth-led projects.
To build strong relationships with organisations that share our aims, thereby further increasing the capacity of Young People to build on their skills and aptitudes for their own personal growth and their community’s long term success and development.
To generate in young people a sense of responsibility and ownership for the projects they undertake to maximise the potential of young people to develop their sense of citizenship and involvement in their communities.
