YMCA and YMCA in Thisted is a large building full of exciting leisure activities for all ages. YMCA and YMCA is a church organization for children and youth, but everyone can join, regardless of religious beliefs. We are not activity-based, but instead we want to create meaningful communities where children and young people gain courage and opportunities to act. It does not require any special prerequisites or competences to be part of the YMCA and YMCA, either as a volunteer or as a child/young person - there is room for everyone here!

Right now we are looking for volunteers for our children and youth activities.
To our children's club with the name 'YA' with children from 0-6th grade, and to our youth club with the name 'Teenklub' with young people from 6th-10th grade.
The children and young people do everything possible when they meet, from cooking, music, games, theatre, bonfires and many different creative activities - only the imagination sets the limits and what the volunteers are passionate about.

An afternoon/evening often consists of the group first gathering for a song and a small story that creates reflection or time for faith, from there the day's activity goes on and finally ends with a short quiet time, e.g. with a light and a song and that we pray the Lord's Prayer together.

YMCA and YMCA are run by volunteers. There is a board and other committees which together create the good framework.

You offer what you can as a volunteer leader - and what and how much you take part in depends on what you as a volunteer want and have the opportunity to do. The voluntary work can consist of:

  • Meet those who are leaders and plan what needs to happen + fun ;)
  • Responsible for activities - planning, purchasing materials and carrying them out.
  • Create security and recognition by coming to the meetings and helping the children where they need it. That the children and young people meet an adult who wants them, who wants to create a community for and with them, who listens, is interested, helps and laughs with them.
  • Take along on a weekend trip to a children's festival or summer camp.
  • Stand to find songs for the meeting and a story or other debate/game that creates time for reflection/faith.
  • Be part of what else happens in the association.
