supported by uk youth





Here we have the beginnings of a collection of materials linked to what began as the National Organization of Girls Clubs in 1911. Today the organization is known as UK Youth - but it has gone through various titles including the National Association of Girls and Mixed Clubs and the National Association of Youth Clubs.

Many of the writers were directly involved in the organization and its forerunners either as officers or as workers. Others wrote specially for it.

We have split the materials up into three periods - and provided links to supporting articles.

Check out the pieces already in the archives.
