What are we about?
Elvira’s Garden Youth Centre welcomes all children between 3 and 15 years old.
Promoting positivity, equality, strength, loyalty and growth, we strive to support childhood development and the transition into adulthood in four key ways:
HEALTH & WELL BEING
Raising nutritional awareness
Discussing and exercising mental health
Practicing environmentally friendly habits
COLLEGE & CAREER READINESS
Tutoring through homework needs and exam prep
Assistance with resumes and applications
Planning individual pathways to chosen futures.
Weekly aid to elderly or disabled neighbours
Hosting community days
SOCIALISING & FUN
Safe space for children to play and engage outside of school
Combining educational advancement with enjoyable activities featuring specified interests
Once we gain a steady and consistent flow of Volunteers we shall be planning to start opening up on Saturdays for those children who can't access our services during the week.
Furthermore, we plan to eventually start an apprenticeship scheme and partner with schools and colleges where children and young adults can "learn on the job" as practical skills in many lines of work are vital for success. Furthermore, it will help individuals confirm their chosen careers.
We are always looking for sponsorships and donations but in the meantime we try and be creative with fundraising options.
Such as we opened a Café & Bar on the Carenage where persons can hire out the venue for parties etc. (All proceeds go back to EGYC)
We run a car wash on Sundays - this is run by 3 of our graduated EGYC members. (All proceeds go back to EGYC).
