Isle of Wight Youth For Christ is a local, Island-based charity funded by a number of churches from right across the Island, and by a large number of individual supporters.The charity employs a small team of workers who, alongside lots of local volunteers, help churches on the Island reach out to, and connect with, young people in a relevant way.
The charity was founded in 2000 by two of its current directors, Ian Peters and Dave Burton, and is part of the wider national Christian youthwork organisation British Youth For Christ. The charity works in close partnership with the Wightchurch Network, and is endorsed by a number of church leaders from different denominations including the Anglican, Methodist, Baptist, and “House Church” traditions.
