Meeting to form Senior Members Committee

Wednesday 12 September 7pm
Meeting to form Senior Members Committee, anyone
aged 13 to 25 can come along and have a say in the activities provided and help run the club.

Initial meeting to form new KYC Management Committee

On Thursday 6th September 7.30pm an initial meeting to form new KYC Management Committee will be held, more details to follow. It is the duty of the Management Committee to safeguard the interests of the members by ensuring the premises, finances and leadership are fit for purpose; it is notits role to supervise activities on a nightly basis. The Management Committee meets on average once every six weeks, without a Management Committee in place KYC cannot continue. We thank those who have indicated a willingness to get involved and invite them and any other interested parties to come along without obligation on 6th September. It would be helpful if we knew who was attending as information packs will be distributed. After this initial meeting the Management will meet again on 18th September to transact relevant business and begin its cycle of meeting once every six weeks.

Preparations are being made for the Autumn/Winter programme

Preparations are being made for the Autumn/Winter programme of activities at KYC starting Monday 10th September. There are already bookings for Basketball, Arts & Crafts, Badminton, Table Tennis, Irish Dancing, Camogie, Zumba and Indoor Football. Is there something YOU want included? Anyone with ideas for the September to Christmas programme should let KYC know as soon as possible.

Volunteer induction and child protection workshops

Anyone considering volunteering a few hours at KYC between September and Christmas should let us know asap as volunteer induction and child protection workshops are being arranged.

Volunteers needed

KYCrelies on offers of assistance from volunteers to deliver our programme of activities. If you can give as little as one hour a week for supervision, or to help in the shop, or if you have a knack for any particular activity whether sporting or in arts & crafts etc and are willing to help please get in touch. It can be difficult to make that first approach but do feel free to call or to drop in any time.

KYC is registered with Millennium Volunteers, a country wide initiative that promotes and recognises volunteering among young people aged 16 to 24. Volunteering is an excellent opportunity to learn new skills, meet new friends, have fun and gain accreditation for your CV etc.
