Profile

Isle of Wight Youth for Christ was officially launched in April 2000. Our aim is to be a ministry that serves the local church and reaches out effectively to young people with God’s message of salvation.

The Isle of Wight has a population of just over 140,000 with just over 17,000 school aged young people.  One of the main issues facing young people on the Island is a lack of career opportunities available when finishing education.  This means a lot of young people that leave for university end up moving away from the Island to pursue possibilities elsewhere.  This has also meant that there is a lack of good role models for young people who are in their early 20’s.

In Sept 2011 the school system on the Island was changed from a 3 tier system to a 2 tier, primary and secondary school system, thus bringing the Island’s education structure more in line with the majority of counties throughout Britain.

Throughout the year we organise and run a number of events, clubs, trips, weekends away and after school small groups as well as working in many of the islands primary and secondary schools taking assemblies and lessons on a regular basis.  We currently connect with more than two hundred young people each week in a relational context as well as making some sort of meaningful contact with over five hundred pupils each week through our work in schools.
