Believe in Youth 2018

We held an event for all services, charities and other organisations, that provide a service to young people to come together and show the public the fantastic opportunities there are on offer.

Silx teen bar came along and had their stall up showing the fantastic work they do with young people around the area from ages 11-25.  They help with employment, drugs and alcohol misuse.  They said “it was a fantastic event and well organised”.

Leading link and children’s university also attended.

Leading link provide a range of activities around the Northumberland area for children and young people including local schools.  These are the guys who organised the Alive in Blyth event earlier this year.

The children university, is a passport system that enables young people and children to get recognition of volunteering and being involved in local activities, they also get a certificate at an awards ceremony for their efforts.

Other notable guests included Children North East and Talent Match.

Children North East provide mentors for young people to help gain their confidence and self esteem. All mentors are between 17 and 21 and work with younger people, helping them to get more involved in local activities.

Talent Match north east help young people into employment through training and CV building and do their work throughout the NorthEeast.

NHS sexual health service came along with free condoms, leaflets, sexual health testing and freebies, they help young people by educating them on sexual health.

We had our own Buffalo Youth Projects there too.  Our youth projects provides four sessions per week for all ages and abilities within the local area. Including activities from healthy eating, sports, arts and crafts and so much more.

Although turnout was not as high as expected  the event was a huge success and a fantastic opportunity for networking with other agencies.  As a result some groups are now getting the sexual health service involved in their clubs, whist other people have exchanged contacts so they can work together in the future.

I am very pleased at positive feedback from the groups who came and the people who attended and also to Greggs who provided some sweet treats for the event.

    Hello we are a small charity based in the North East.
    We are not looking nor asking you for funding.

    The North East has high levels of deprivation, unemployment and isolation. Growing up in this is demotivating and can make young people feel despondent about their prospects. Our engagement can change this and help them to truly discover what they’re capable and generate the drive and determination to do something meaningful.
    The Key is a well-respected charity with a 25 year history of delivering high quality and impactful results for vulnerable and disadvantaged young people. Our youth-led approach, the level of autonomy and trust we empower young people with sets us apart from other youth organisations. Our 85% retention rate shows our framework can keep some of the most disengaged young people engaged over a long period of time, giving them the best chance to develop themselves for later life.

    I would like to set up a meeting to see how you would benefit from our services
    I have also left a message on your facebook

      Hi Selina,

      I’ve just seen your message. If someone hasn’t been in touch yet then I apologise. I’ll pass this on to the centre manager and one of the youth workers who should then be in contact with you.

      Kind regards,

      Chris Judson

    I believe everything typed made a bunch of
    sense. But, think about this, what if you typed a catchier title?

    I mean, I don’t wish to tell you how to run your blog, but suppose you added a headline
    that grabbed a person’s attention? I mean Believe in Youth 2018 – The Buffalo Community
    Centre is a little vanilla. You might peek at Yahoo’s front page and
    note how they create news headlines to get viewers to click.
    You might try adding a video or a related picture or two to
    grab people excited about what you’ve got to say.
    Just my opinion, it could bring your posts a little livelier.

    I think what you published was very logical. However,
    think about this, what if you were to write a killer title?
