We believe every young person should have the opportunity, resource and support the achieve their full potential.

YMCA Newcastle provides unconditional support to young people in Newcastle. Our aim is to enable young people to fulfill their full potential by offering them the opportunity, resources and support to achieve this.

We believe that all young people have the right to achieve their full potential. Many young people that we work with face barriers to achieving their full potential, but we encourage them to have more control over their lives and to make informed choices where possible. We provide the opportunities, resources and support to enable them to make and maintain positive changes to their lives. 

We encourage young people to achieve this by taking part in activities and being involved in their community. This allows them to gain confidence and develop personal and social skills.

Programmes and activities that we offer include:

  • Duke of Edinburgh 
  • Camping
  • Outward bound trips
  • Volunteering opportunities
  • Youth Cafe and street work
  • Drop In Sessions
  • Art and Creative Workshops
