TVYFC has been delivering quality youth work across the region for over a decade. Each week our teams of youth workers are busy volunteering in local schools and supporting youth work happening in churches and community projects all around Teesside. As an organisation, we focus on being:

Relational

We focus on building positive relationships with young people as a way of seeing their lives change for the better.

Relevant

We connect with young people through things that interest them, and we adapt as new opportunities arise.

Intentional

We purposefully search for ways to impact young people; we do things with integrity and pray about everything.

Incarnational

We live life in local communities and join people in their current situation. We support churches and schools while helping however we can.

OUR MISSION STATEMENT:

‘Taking the Good News relevantly to every young person in the Tees Valley’

 

By this, we mean:

Taking: Carrying what has been personally and corporately grasped to present and to discover alongside young people

Good News: The gospel of God’s redemptive love uniquely demonstrated in the life, death, and resurrection of His Son, Jesus Christ, as expressed in the Bible and systematised in historic Christian creeds

Relevantly: In a style and form that communicates effectively and with integrity for a given audience. This demands flexibility in approach and reflects the original commitment of YFC: ‘Geared to the times, anchored to the rock.’

Every young person: Not limited by geography, economics, status, culture, ethnicity, disability, etc. within the age range of 11-25 years old

 

 We are a local centre under the leadership of British Youth for Christ, and are a registered charity, number 1100160.
