SUPPORTING MARGINALISED YOUNG PEOPLE WHO GROW UP IN CHALLENGING ENVIRONMENTS. WE IDENTIFY THE NEED AND WORK IN PARTNERSHIP WITH OTHERS TO BRING SOLUTIONS AND AN OUTCOME THAT LEAVES A LASTING LEGACY.
NICODEMUS RESCUES YOUNG PEOPLE WHO HAVE BEEN OVERLOOKED AND ARE LIVING ON THE FRINGES OF SOCIETY. THROUGH PARTNERING WITH LOCAL COMMUNITY FOCUSED ORGANISATIONS.
Working with some of the most hard-to-reach young people in the UK and Guatemala, Nicodemus helps to build relationships and trust, stabilising and gently progressing young people to take leadership and ownership of their own communities.
THROUGH YOUTH-LED WORKSHOPS, YOUNG PEOPLE ARE EMPOWERED TO TRANSFORM THEIR OWN LIVES AND ARE QUALIFIED BY EXPERIENCE TO IMPACT THEIR COMMUNITIES.
I HAVE BEEN ABLE TO COMMUNICATE MORE WITH PEOPLE THAN EVER BEFORE. I STRUGGLED WITH SPEAKING ABOUT MY LIFE AND WOULD JUST BRUSH MY FEELINGS ASIDE AND IGNORE THEM. DEEP DOWN I FELT LONELY AT TIMES. NOW, MY BEHAVIOUR HAS ALSO IMPROVED AT SCHOOL AND I AM MORE FOCUSSED, AND I AM TAKING TIME TO THINK ABOUT WHAT I AM DOING BEFORE DOING IT”
WE ENCOURAGE YOUNG PEOPLE TO BRING NEW LIFE AND HOPE TO THEIR COMMUNITIES THROUGH YOUTH-LED COMMUNITY ACTION.
All of our programmes are implemented by local people passionate about rebuilding young lives and empowering and equipping young people to transform their communities. As young people receive healing and restoration in their own lives they, in turn, bring healing and restoration into their communities through social action projects.
