NICODEMUS BEGAN WITH A PASSION TO CHANGE THE FUTURE FOR YOUNG PEOPLE AND THIS VISION HAS EXPANDED TO TRANSFORMING COMMUNITIES ALL OVER THE WORLD.
Nicodemus first embarked on a Youth Leadership & Community Action Programme with street children and youth in Guatemala. In 2013, while volunteering at a residential center in Banbury, we realised that the young people who lived there were of a similar profile to those in Guatemala –they were just more hidden away. That realisation prompted us to run similar projects with partners in the UK.
There are now 1940 young people being supported through our Youth Leadership Programme, and 68 UK partners and 16 partners in Guatemala working with us to reach vulnerable youth. Nicodemus is continually partnering with new churches, schools and community groups to meet the needs of more young people in Guatemala and the UK.
OUR MISSION IS TO RESCUE MARGINALISED YOUNG PEOPLE, HELP THEM RESTORE THEIR OWN LIVES AND THEN EQUIP AND EMPOWER THEM TO REBUILD THEIR COMMUNITIES.

IT WAS REALLY HARD, I WAS STUCK IN A REALLY DEEP HOLE, I DIDN’T HAVE ANY DOORS TO OPEN. BEING INVOLVED WITH NICODEMUS HAS HELPED ME COPE WITH MY MENTALITY. ONE DAY I WOULD LIKE TO HAVE THE OPPORTUNITY TO HELP PULL SOMEONE ELSE OUT OF THE HOLE I WAS IN."
