M13 Youth Project works with over 600 young people a year in Ardwick, Manchester
to promote fun, learning, action and change,
within young people, our workers and the communities in which we live and work.
We usually do this through spending time out on the streets in our community every day, meeting, listening to and talking with young people and developing further activities together, such as trips, residentials, projects, workshops, accredited learning, volunteering and community action.
As of March 2020, we have changed our working practices as a result of the government's guidelines on keeping safe during the COVID-19 outbreak. We are still here and in touch with young people, working safely with them in creative ways online. You can find out more about this on our Current Activities and our COVID-19 Working pages.
This is a challenging time for all of us. If you have any concerns for yourself, your family or another young person and you'd like to talk it through with someone, PLEASE FEEL FREE TO SHARE YOUR CONCERNS WITH US. Find out more on the COVID-19 Help page.
We are a community-based voluntary sector project, established in 1995 by the current Manager, Helen, specialising in street-based 'detached' youth work with young people often labelled hard-to-reach. We work in the inner-urban areas of Brunswick, Grove Village, Coverdale and Newbank in Ardwick, Manchester, from an inclusive Christian value-base, using the principles and practices of informal education and community development.
We believe all young people deserve to be treated with respect and dignity and that each young person can love, think, create, reflect, enjoy, achieve and make a positive difference to their world.
