RICC Youth Club

The RICC Youth Club has been running since September 2009 and to date has been a great success. Catering for 7 to 9 year old boys and girls, we meet every Wednesday for an hour and a half and charge a small membership fee of €2 per week. We have enjoyed many activities such as; gardening in the RICC allotments, barbeques, ice skating, arts and crafts, clay modelling, football and we even got back to basics with some knitting which both boys and girls loved. At the club we try to incorporate fun and education into the mix and we also link in with the CDYSB, who are also located in the centre. So when our children turn ten they have the option to enter straight into the CDYSB Youth Project, which ensures that our kids are facilitated right up until the age of 21 if they so choose. All the leaders of the RICC Youth Club work together each week to ensure that the children have an outlet separate to school and home where they can relax, have fun, learn something new and make new friends. And we can see in the delight of their faces each week that this has been effective. We hope to continue the club on for many years to come!
