The club is run by a team of staff and volunteers and is structured in a way that the young people enjoy. Every week there is a theme or topic, for example, 'Healthy Eating', 'Cyber Bullying' etc, but unlike Kidz Klub, our approach is much more discussion based with the Rock Solid youth groups.The first section of the programme usually involves a game or craft activity. We then have refreshments and a chance just to chat and listen to music. This then leads onto a discussion group, or presentation on the weeks topic, always presented in an entertaining and imaginative way. The final part of the club is an extended period which can involve, dance, drama, crafts, music, quizzes, sports and games…anything that young people find entertaining and interesting. Once a month we take the Rock Solid youth groups out on an "outdoor Social" as we call them. This could be swimming, bowling, ice skating, climbing, go karting, cinema, theatre or a local park in the summer. Beth and Ben (see "The Team") lead this club with support from some of our excellent volunteers – Chloe, Britt and Kirstie.
