Youth Services 

We run projects for young people in specific areas of the city, the projects are designed to help build positive relationships between young people. They can also learn a skill, enjoy an activity, have a voice and make a positive contribution to their communities.

Targeted youth projects and 1-2-1 mentoring

Targeted youth projects (13-17 years)

We recognise that some young people have specific barriers that will stop them from engaging in our main stream youth activities. With this in mind the Youth in Localities Team offer specific issue or theme based youth projects. These projects offer more intensive, structured or gender specific personal development opportunities that aim to support young people our key outcomes.

Volunteer to work with Young People

If you are looking to work with children and young people in the future then volunteering as a youth worker will give you specific skills, abilities and experience that are highly sought after by employers. Youth Workers engage with young people on a voluntary basis in their own communities to help them to become successful, happy citizens as adults.

We have a range of youth work projects available that run across the city with links to other partner organisations. Our usual youth work sessions are on weekday evenings for around 2-3 hours and there are also weekends and residential opportunities working on the Duke of Edinburgh and NCS programmes.

More information on volunteering and how to apply can be found on the Volunteer to work with Young People page.

What is it? Who is it for?

Centre 33 and Peterborough City Council are working together to provide a safe, confidential place where young people aged 13-25yrs can access health related support, including free and confidential counselling, advice on self-help, and access to information on local health related services.

Centre 33 generally offer short-term counselling. This includes an Initial Assessment and then 6 sessions of counselling, which are once a week at the same time each week.

Young people come to us for a wide range of reasons and we will work with you, whatever your issues. If things are getting you down then talking to someone may help. It is completely normal to need support from time to time, and to ask for some help. 

If you would like to find out more about what counselling is and how it can help then please have a look at our frequently asked questions about counselling and Centre 33
