Why Volunteer? - Here are the testimonies of some of the club's valuable helpers

I was first approached by Karen Taylor when the club was in its initial stages. She shared the reason behind the idea for the club, and although it was a sobering conversation, her passion to get it going was infectious.

Young people need places where they can escape and be themselves and enjoy the company of their peers in safe surroundings, which is what The Escape Youth Club provides. As an older volunteer, I feel accepted and privileged to be engaged with the young people, see them interact with all ages in the groups, and enjoy themselves as they participate in the games and new skills on offer.

I’m so glad I became a volunteer for The Escape Youth Club, it is so rewarding and Burgess Hill really needed something like this for its children. There are so many fun things to get involved with and so many amazing people you get to know. I would highly recommend volunteering, even if you can only do it once a month. Anything is better than not doing anything.

I joined The Escape Youth Club to help make a young people understand that they a voice and a say in what happens in their community. Nothing gets done if you don't take action. Also to give them guidance into what they want to do, so many young people don't know what direction to take. I want to show them all the options they can and that they can do anything they put their mind to. The last reason is for them to embrace who they are and not to be shy to express how they feel.
