MISSION AND HISTORY
Springfield Youth Club is located on Big Hill not far from Walthamstow Marshes. Our location enables us to attract a diverse group of young people, often from disadvantaged backgrounds found in Clapton, Stoke Newington, Stamford Hill and Rectory Road areas.
Springfield Youth Club is a safe haven for young people to go and meet and enjoy themselves. Without access to the Youth Club it significantly reduces their chances to develop social, team building, leadership and communication skills for the future, which are vital in today’s society.
Springfield Youth Club is dedicated ”to help each child or young person find interests, and to help each individual to develop, as far as they can, towards being a useful citizen of tomorrow” [Anthony Marsh 1963].
We will endeavour to provide support and improve the quality of the educational and social activities of these individuals. By developing their physical, mental and spiritual capacities, they will grow to full maturity as responsible individual members of our society.
