We are an enthusiastic team of Christian youth workers based in the local area of Tavistock

We employ a full-time, fully qualified Director of Youth Work who manages a team of trainee youth workers and a team of volunteers. Our trainee youth workers are foundation and degree level students, including some students from South West Youth Ministries (SWYM).
