FYT has connections with many youth work projects at a number of different levels. Our wider work (training, information, consultancy etc) flows out of our direct experience of youth work. Click on the link for each project to get a picture of what the projects do and how FYT is involved.
FYT uses its direct experience of youth work to produce resources (books, CDs, magazines, journals, videos etc) that we hope will help and support others who work with young people at risk. Our web site enables you to purchase those that are for sale and download those that are free.
Below you'll find some of our featured resources. The Resources & downloads section of the site contains the whole catalogue.
FYT: Mission with Young People at Risk
Frontier Youth Trust (FYT) works with young people at risk towards justice, equality and community. Motivated by the Christian faith and informed by its principles, we work with people of all faiths and none. Based upon our youth work experience and research we also support, resource, inform, advise and train those working with and on behalf of disadvantaged young people. FYT works through a diverse range of projects including StreetSpace, Out4Good, Alongside and AIMCommunity.
Supporting The People With The Dreams
An influential Bishop and Cricketer who is part of FYT's founding story, David Sheppard, once said of FYT, "we must support the people with the dreams". It is an enduring call to youth work.’
Recently FYT has been thinking about ways to support the dreamers. Those who are dreaming of new ways to engage young people at the edge through StreetSpace; those dreaming of ways to help the church make a difference to unemployed young people; and dreaming of a way to support young people as they seek to reduce their offending among so many other dreams.
