M did not look forward to school holidays as she would be bored. But since joining Yellow Submarine she looks forward to each trip and has had a great summer.
The Monday Night Club is a social group for young adults aged 18 to 30, based at our hub in central Oxford, running from 6.00pm to 8:30pm on…you guessed it, Mondays!
Do you find yourself sitting at home bored, watching the soaps, thinking “there must be more to Mondays than this?” Well, there is….come and join us! The club is led by young people, for young people, so you are responsible for what we do. Recent activities have included a cocktail & canape evening, quizzes, karaoke nights, and gaming on the PS4.
Our comfortable space is the perfect place for relaxing and kicking back with people your own age, you can spend time with your old friends and make new ones. We chat about everything from football and pop music, to sex, relationships and healthy eating.
Our central location (map) means we can take advantage of all Oxford has to offer; lively pubs, tasty takeaways and beautiful parks.
Once a month we host a ‘MEGA Monday’, where we do something special, usually based in the local community; we visit restaurants & pubs, go swimming, bowling and lots more.
We are very easy to get to using public transport, located near the train station and with many bus stops within walking distance. People travel from all over Oxfordshire to attend and we can support you to find a safe way to get to us. We have many success stories of young people learning to use the bus, accompanied by their more experienced friends, in order to reach the Monday Night Club.
Monday Night Club was named ‘Youth Project of the Year’ in 2014 by Oxfordshire Youth, so it’s not just us that thinks it’s brilliant!
Aside from having fun, the aim of Monday night Club is to support young adults in transition build independent social lives. Through peer based learning, it is a stepping stone to accessing mainstream groups.
Our greatest success can be shown on the odd occasion when haven’t run the club. Our members have been sufficiently empowered to take over and run the club without us!!
We understand that everybody interacts at different levels and recognise that some people find socialising more challenging than others. At Yellow Submarine we hope to help you build confidence and make new friends.
