BRYR is a large professional Youth Work Organisation in Ballymun, supporting the needs of young people aged 10-24yrs. We run a range of diverse programmes with a team of 40 staff. The well established Music Club is not a School of Music, instead it is a space where young people from the local area who enjoy music, can come together for a chat in a musical space.
The Music Club runs on Tuesdays from 5pm to 9.30pm and is divided into three age groups. Volunteers can do all or a part of this timeframe and your volunteering will be supported by the staff who lead the Music Club.

This volunteering opportunity is with a vibrant music club that is led out by an experienced team of youth workers and volunteers. You could be facilitated to lead out a programme yourself should you wish to do so. Come along and give it a go!
