How do I go about opening a new club?

It is the incredible work carried out by hundreds of volunteers, young and old, from all walks of life that drives us forward and makes sure we continue to evolve as a progressive, youthful and positive organisation. If you are interested in opening a club, we will provide all the information you need to get you started. We will be with you on your journey to getting your club off the ground and will walk alongside you every week. Our dedicated club officers Ethan and Mary will arrange a meeting to talk through our set up process. From setting up your committee, to obtaining funding to securing a venue, it is a very exciting and rewarding experience so we urge you to take the leap if you are considering it.

You can help create a lasting legacy for your community by helping establish a new No Name Club in your area

Our staff will support you during this process as you create a safe and enduring club that provides a positive empowering space for young people. Contact us today and speak with our dedicated Club Support Officers Ethan and Mary who will arrange a meeting to talk through our set up process.

What To Expect

No Name Clubs are valued and respected right across the country of Ireland and people feel proud to be associated with us. People appreciate the Ethos and Values that we promote; they respect the work we do with young people and communities and last but by no means least they have trust in the credibility of our organisation.

We take pride in that all our clubs will offer:

  • A warm welcome.
  • Non judgemental safe spaces
  • Positive places, full of enthusiasm for young people and their interests
  • An opportunity to take social responsibility with activities and projects
  • An opportunity to cultivate strong organisational skills.
  • Inclusion in a successful established organisation.
  • A commitment to Diversity, Equity and Inclusion and acceptance of all persons.

What do I need to grow our club?

Retaining Volunteers

Without volunteers the No Name Club would simply not work. The level of commitment and the continued support that we receive as a National Organisation is second to none. Each club should have a succession plan in place and as club members get older, they may wish to become involved in a different capacity and as an organisation, we strongly encourage this.

It is so important that we acknowledge the work of our volunteers and never take them for granted. We aim to give variety in roles, so all volunteers continue to learn, gain new experiences and grow as individuals. Remember respect is key, so the most important word is “We” and the least important word is “I”.

We aim to always acknowledge a job well done. In general volunteers remain involved with the club because:

They feel valued.
They are respected.
They feel included.
They feel a sense of pride.
They have a sense of achievement.

Recruitment of New Volunteers

The first thing to do when recruiting new volunteers is to invite them to get involved. Be specific about what they are being asked to do and the time commitment that will be required. If you can, try to match volunteers to the skills they have, however it is really important that all volunteers feel they have something to offer. Potential volunteers will need reassurance:

When meeting potential volunteers for the first time:

  • Invite them to a club night.
  • Introduce them – who’s who and what’s what.
  • Explain how they can be involved and inquire if there is anything specific that they would like to get involved with.
  • Assure them that they will get full support in all aspects of volunteering.

Most importantly, discuss garda vetting and child protection training process for all volunteers. All clubs will be linked with their local Volunteer Centre. Our club support officers Mary and Ethan are also always on hand to assist with the club volunteer process.

Promoting No Name Club

Everyone involved in No Name Club has a responsibility to positively promote the Ethos and Values and aims and objectives by which we stand and are governed. Both volunteers and club members should strive to highlight the good work they do in the local communities. Our website and online social media presence are always happy to promote the fantastic activities our clubs get up to and we encourage everyone to get involved and engage with us.

No Name Club Head office is always be on hand to assist and support any coverage, whether it be online, print media or local radio. All clubs should be familiar with the National Framework, Better Outcomes Brighter Futures, The Health Quality Mark, Healthy Ireland and the National Quality Standards Framework of which we work in line with.
