We focus on building positive relationships with young people as a way of seeing their lives change for the better.
We connect with young people through things that interest them, and we adapt as new opportunities arise.
We purposefully search for ways to impact young people; we do things with integrity and pray about everything.
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.
