Group Activities Youth club Befriend a Child currently host youth clubs in Northfield with views for expansion in the next few years. Our weekly Youth Clubs are hosted by our trained Youth Club Leader in the Northfield area of Aberdeen where the children engage in crafts, baking, games and skills building opportunities. Playscheme We understand the strain placed on parents’ shoulders during school holidays and our aim is to ease some of that pressure with our holiday playscheme. Our holiday playschemes take place during the Easter, Summer and October school holidays. Children of our befriending and mentoring programmes are invited to take part in a number of activities taking place during the holidays including day trips away, crafts and baking at our base and activities hosted by our partners across the City and Shire. Group sessions Befriend a Child also host monthly group sessions for the children we support and their befrienders and mentors using the facilities at our base at 9 Bon Accord Square. The children are invited to take part in activities such as baking and cooking, painting, games, and seasonal crafting with their befrienders and mentors where they will also have the opportunity to meet other children and volunteers. Parties and outings Throughout the year Befriend a Child also host Halloween and Christmas parties as well as an annual summer outing all of the children and our volunteers are invited to take part in.
