From quite small beginnings in a rented shop in Castlegate, our story has seen us grow into a very diverse organisation, offering a wide range of services to all young people who might need them.
From very specific ‘helping’ services such as housing and counselling, to activities like expeditions and film-making, over 6000 young people have had some form of involvement with us since we first opened our doors in 1995.
I’ve been really fortunate to be the Manager of the Project from the very beginning, and have a great team of staff who love their jobs, which although slightly different from each other, are all about helping young people get the best out of life.
If you’re a young person, living in the area around Berwick, perhaps you will be part of the Youth Project’s story in the years to come? Come along to our base in Golden Square and say hello.
If you think the Project doesn’t offer anything for you, we’d like to hear about it so we could change what we do in the future.
