Youth Work

We believe that every young person should have the opportunity to fulfil their potential.

This is why we run drop in sessions; Schools Awareness Programmes, youth centres and community cafes, sports facilities and more, so that young people can develop their talents express their creativity and grow into happy and independent adults.

YMCA Youth Workers are committed to helping young people to grow, mature and reach their potential as active members of their communities. We do this through sports work, detached work, delivering our schools awareness programme to schools and colleges, running community events, supporting local community groups and constantly looking for opportunities to grow.

Whether a young person is looking for a place to chill out with their mates, find out about qualifications or volunteering opportunities, get some support to handle an issue or just sit back with a cuppa and a laptop, YMCA Somerset Coast has something for you.

Many YMCA Projects are in partnership with other groups and organisations and youth work is no exception. We work with faith groups, schools; other youth work services, district and county councils, loads of volunteers and hundreds of young people.

If you would like to get involved as a volunteer or just join in with what is going on – check us out and find out what we can do together.
