Looking for a new way to do school?
We are passionate about seeing young people reach their full potential, and believe that gaining a quality education increases their ability to succeed. While students grow academically, schools provide young people with the opportunity to mature individually and gain skills for a lifetime.
Each week, our staff volunteer in primary, secondary, and collegiate schools across Teesside, providing support in and out of the classroom. Tees Valley Youth for Christ staff serve the schools in a number of ways.
SCROLL DOWN TO READ ABOUT HOW WE CAN HELP IN YOUR SCHOOL
Tees Valley Youth for Christ recognises that schools hold a special place in society and that any work done by our staff within a school must be in accordance with recognised good practice. We do not believe that any school is an appropriate place for proselytising of any kind. We respect the individual beliefs and values of the diverse range of children and young people we work with.
Our aim is to serve local schools in any way that we can be helpful, and our volunteers have been known to help with things like gardening, moving classroom equipment, chaperoning school trips, and organising an end of term lunch for school staff!
If you are a school staff member, and think that Tees Valley Youth for Christ workers could serve your school in some way, please get in touch with us. We would love to speak with you.

What local schools have to say about Tees Valley Youth for Christ
Mission teams that have come in invariably spend 4-5 days in school usually working with the RE department and taking the daily assemblies. A recent team which came in were part of a visiting choir and so worked with the music department. This team also ran an activities/sports event each day after school which attracted a large number of students. Through this partnership the school has also been able to arrange annual visits to America either taking the 6th Form football team or 6th Form RE students to Texas. These visits are highly valued by the Academy and have always proved to be very successful and popular with the students.
