Local Crime Prevention Officer, Constable PJ Whyte, said: "The busy schedule of events held at Crumlin Utd Youth Club is a great opportunity for young people to get involved in fun activities during the school holidays.
"Every Monday night for a period of ten weeks, from 7.00pm to 9.00pm, 14 –17 year olds will participate in a drug and alcohol self-awareness programme and learn about the associated dangers. On a Tuesday night from 7.00pm to 9.00pm, 13 –16 year olds will explore attitudes and identities in preparation for a cross community contact scheme.
"Wednesday nights, from 7.00 pm to 9.00pm provide an opportunity for 11-13 year olds to participate in a youth club bullying programme and awareness of various aspects such as cyber bullying. Twenty five young people can learn various aspects of archery, focusing on technique, health and safety, or opt to play team and individual games and even perfect their DJ skills from 7.00pm – 9.00pm on Thursday evenings.
"Friday evenings, from 7.00pm – 9.00pm are dedicated to allowing twenty to thirty young people to socialise with friends and learn new skills such as ‘hip-hop’ dancing. The evening Youth Club runs on a Saturday evening from 7.00pm – 9.00pm and is suitable for all ages while Sunday offers young people the chance to enhance their Hip Hop dance skills with extra dance classes running from 4.00pm – 6.00pm, in preparation for the finals in Cork, 9 – 13 October 2009."
