We believe every young person should be able to fulfil their potential.

Helping young people gain the confidence to make decisions about their own lives is an important part of our work at YMCA Newcastle, as is providing an environment in which they can flourish. We support young people to access training, education and employment by working with individuals on a one to one basis, identifying and overcoming any barriers young people may have to accessing training, education and employment and then supporting them to achieve their end goal.  

Education is more than formal schooling. That is why YMCA Newcastle offers a range of education, skills-based training, placement and apprenticeship schemes such as:

  • CV writing and job application sessions
  • Interview preparation and mock interviews
  • Work experience and volunteering opportunities 
  • Volunteering course
  • Duke of Edinburgh Award
  • ASDAN Award
  • Alternative Education

We have Training & Education opportunities available at both our city centre project, SPACE2... and the Walker Project, based in Walker.
