CEO’s Thoughts (October Newsletter)

28 October 2021

Welcome to our October newsletter.

As we enter Youth Work Week, it would be fantastic for all of our friends and supporters to think about how you can become a champion for young people, with young people facing more and more challenges they need more advocates in our communities.

We have seen over many years the decline in youth clubs and informal local based community activities. This is for many reasons, funding being one, but also the lack of community volunteers who are willing and prepared to give up some time to provide opportunities for local young people. Over its 80 years, Berkshire Youth has always had the challenge of recruiting new volunteers and relied on some core community champions, but we need to look at how we can help recruit more volunteers and provide the support and training to make the opportunities really great for volunteers and young people. What can we all do to help going forward and what can we do to help you?

We’d love to hear from you if you are able to spare some time to support local young people!

I hope you enjoy this month’s newsletter.
