“We have been working with SYC over the past year on a range of activities both within school and out in community. These amazing opportunities have allowed students to take their learning beyond the classroom, something which they have all thrived on. Students have been working towards achieving a range of nationally recognised qualifications as well as enhancing their own personal and social development skills. The SYC team are hugely experienced, caring, passionate people who place the needs of the students at the centre of everything they do.
The academy is looking forward to our journey ahead with SYC.”

“Because my son attends JMA and my husband is a govenor there also, we’re aware of lots of challenges in the school community, particularly around mental health and that there’s a great need for pastoral care. I’m so encouraged that SYC are present and active in the school, bringing the presence of Jesus, and giving much needed pastoral care and support to young people who desperately need. I’m convinced that this is absoloutley invaluable work in our community.“
What we offer
Seasonal Community Events
SYC is headed up by qualified youth and community workers with youth work, teaching and training experience across three continents. We only do schools’ work in the communities in which we are based, so we are known well locally.
All our youth workers, including trainees and interns are DBS cleared and we operate under the safeguarding policy of the school in which we are working.
All our trainees, volunteers and interns receive youth work training and ongoing mentoring. We partner with other charities and agencies to deliver the best work in schools we can, whilst keeping to our values. Our vocational training program is accredited by CYM (Institute for Children Youth and Mission) who issue NOCN qualifications to our students.
