Darlington Area Churches Youth Ministry

Charity description

Darlington Area Churches Youth Ministry logo
Darlington Area Churches Youth Ministry (DACYM) is a community based youth-focused outreach initiative that helps supports churches with their work with young people. It is our aim that through our work, the lives of young people will be transformed educationally, socially and spiritually, thus empowering them to achieve their full potential.

DACYM works from an inclusive Christian value base, using the principles and practices of informal education and community development. We work with young people in many different contexts including:-
  • SCHOOLS - DACYM have worked with over half of the secondary schools in Darlington, helping by providing assemblies, RE/PHSE Lessons, lunchtime activities and support for pupils with behaviour problems and at possible risk of exclusion.
CHURCHES - working alongside churches of different denominations and traditions DACYM run different activities for young people including a Drop-In for 6th Form Students, a popular Girls Group and a Friday Night Drop-In in Hurworth.
  • RESIDENTIALS - DACYM runs a week long youth retreat each summer holiday called Breathe.
