Three nights a week from 7:30 to 9:30 pm the Club is open to members for recreational and sporting activities. This allows the club to provide for the spare time needs of children and young people late into the night when they are most vulnerable of being caught up in criminal activity and/or drug abuse. This programme is also aimed at promoting Voluntarism within our organisation and is mainly staffed by Volunteers from the various third level College’s around the City as well as the local Community. One of our main sources of volunteers has been from the Society of St. Vincent De Paul in University College Dublin. Here volunteers help with the supervision of the various activities we offer to members such as sporting activity, arts & crafts classes, baking & cooking classes, internet café facilities as well as music& dance sessions. As with all personnel involved in working with children in our youth club volunteer positions are subject to Garda vetting and as such perspective volunteers may experience a short delay while this is been carried out. While this can be seen as an inconvenience it is never the less a welcome child protection measure.
Programme times and age groups:
- Tuesday Night (Juniors) 7 to 11 year olds/ 7:30-9:00 pm
- Wednesday Night (Juniors) 7 to 11 year olds/ 7:30-9:00 pm

This drop-in programme runs from October to May each year and is heavily reliant on volunteers to keep operating. For information on volunteering click here, alternatively please contact the club office on 01-8550282.
