Youth Club sessions

At Pie, our youth club sessions help young people in East Kent to influence their own lives positively.

Across the Thanet and Dover districts, 8-17-year-olds can take part in our free open-access sessions. Every session promotes emotional, social and physical wellbeing and development.

Young people can have fun, make friends, learn about themselves and develop skills, building confidence and future opportunities. Activities include cooking, arts and crafts, sport, games and music, all in an inclusive, welcoming environment.

We take a universal and targeted approach to our youth provision, and aim to engage and build positive relationships with families, the wider community and partners. Our team, made up of qualified team leaders, sessional youth workers, volunteers and young leaders, are trained to ensure young people’s safety and wellbeing in all of our sessions. Significant support in place for those facing financial barriers to participation.

We can help young people gain accredited qualifications too, including:

  • Arts Award
  • Basic First Aid
  • Food Hygiene
