Cramlington Voluntary Youth Project was established in 1990. Catering for South East Northumberland, a wide range of services are offered to the young people in this area. They include fun and specialised youth groups, allowing them access to a wide range of opportunities and award schemes.
The work at Cramlington Voluntary Youth Project is focused on offering a range of opportunities than can further the social and personal development of young people. We provide a safe and friendly venue that meets the changing needs and desires of young people with differing ages and abilities.
- Actively listen to young people’s need and offering guidance, support and advice in all aspects of their life.
- Encourage young people to adopt a positive mental attitude in order to pursue & enjoy new experiences and be successful in gaining new skills for their future.
- Enable young people to have an active input into the direction CVYP takes, which offers them a invaluable insight into the meaning of responsibility.
- Empower, encourage and support young people to pursue accreditation through specific projects or learning schemes, emphasising the benefits of citizenship within the community.
CVYP recruits its apprentices from those who know and love the activities they offer, because they have used the services of CVYP themselves. The apprentices go on to lead other young people in doing those same activities, as well as coming up with new ideas.
