Programmes for Children, Young People and Families

At YMCA Newark and Sherwood, we understand that every young person is unique.

As a not-for-profit charity, our services work closely with the local community to ensure we offer a plethora of fun activities that will enable children from all backgrounds, ages and abilities to learn and grow together.

Developmental assets for young people

A research model constructed by YMCA Silicon Valley details the importance of 41 fundamental developmental assets needed for a child’s personal development.

This pioneering work has had a considerable impact on how we shape our programmes in Newark and the surrounding areas. Our team is dedicated to delivering three-dimensional youth services that speak to every life element needed for a child to develop within a safe and positive learning environment.

YMCA Scholarships

At YMCA Newark and Sherwood, we believe the only limit on a child’s life potential should be their imagination. That is why we offer scholarship places to ensure financial support for families who are unable to cover costs of our children’s programmes.

Sponsor a child to attend camp or find out if you qualify for a YMCA scholarship by clicking the links below.
