Here at the YMCA Newcastle, we have multiple different locations and facilities where we provide a range of services to support young people and support the local community. Our Head Office is in Walker, we have a Youth Project, Community Centre and Cafe in Walker and we have a City Centre Youth Project
Space2… our city centre youth project is designed especially for young people, where we have volunteers and members of staff helping to support and provide opportunities and training for those who may not receive them elsewhere. It is important to us to make this help as accessible for people as possible, and therefore having this space in the city centre is a crucial part of it’s involvement with the YMCA Newcastle. Space2… is a safe place for young people to relax and socialise, whilst giving opportunities to complete personal development programmes, achieve qualifications and opportunities.
We have had fashion shows, dance shows, music events and disco’s put on by the young people as well as volunteers.
