NEWCASTLE, ENGLAND

There is one project in Newcastle, but two locations, sponsored by the Assumption Sisters and our AMA UK Sister program, ALVP.  A short description of Kids Kabin is below, and more information can be found on the ALVP web site.

  • Kids Kabin is an alternative education project based in Walker, Newcastle-upon-Tyne. It offers young people creative and purposeful alternatives to boredom, which can lead to youth disorder. Young people from the ages of 8 - 13 attend Kids Kabin to do wood work, pottery, painting, fine arts, crafts, cooking and gardening. It also runs residential trips, day outings and camping expeditions. Kids Kabin operates on a drop- in basis; young people coming and going as they choose.  This project is looking for volunteers who: have an interest in the arts;  enjoy working with youth;  are enthusiastic about providing healthy alternatives to the disadvantaged; would enjoy joining in the mission of the Assumption Sisters.  The volunteers in this area of Newcastle will also volunteer at other neighborhood agencies, including:  Wor Hoose ("Our House"), a neighborhood center that provides activities to mothers, men, and young children and St. Anthony's Senoir Centre,  an adult day center, providing activities and companionship to elders in the neighborhood.
