Carlisle Youth Zone
Carlisle Youth Zone (CYZ) is a registered charity and a state of the art centre with over 1,200 members visiting each week, an incredible facility offering unique experiences to all young people regardless of background. From the young person bullied at school, to the teenage mum, from the bright and outgoing young teenager to the young offender, from the young person with learning difficulties to the young person at risk of sexual exploitation, we are there for all young people and we are proudly the only place in Carlisle where all young people are brought together – there’s nothing else like this in Cumbria, it’s a very special place.
CYZ is a safe, fun space to hang-out, meet new people and try new things. Our extensive activities include: team sports, boxing, archery, cooking, art & film, enterprise, radio studio, dance, gym, climbing wall, trips and much more.
Designed entirely on the needs of young people, we use exciting activities as a hook to engage individuals, using this opportunity to address serious issues, which helps facilitate personal, social and educational growth enabling them reach their full potential in society. We provide young people with a place which raises aspirations, encourages positive behaviour and develops healthy lifestyles. Our youth work team supports young people of all backgrounds, abilities and ages, encouraging personal responsibility, tolerance and ambition.
We believe passionately in giving the young people of Carlisle the best start in life by providing great facilities and developing young people’s ideas and aspirations.
These young people are tomorrow’s customers, employees, business leaders and entrepreneurs.
If a young person is told “you’ll never amount to anything” we’ll be there to tell them the opposite and Carlisle Youth Zone will give them the opportunities and platform to be as confident, ambitious and creative as they want to be.
We are creating Carlisle’s future by ensuring that it is full of young, inspired, determined and creative people.
