JusB youth centre was started in 2003 by the family worker from St Mary's Church, College Road who met young people in Bromley who had nowhere to go, were not particularly interested in church yet needed support. They wanted somewhere to “jusb themselves”.
JusB was born and moved into College Road in 2005. Since then they have worked with thousands of young people giving them support and providing activities. Their mission is 'to serve young people by accompanying them through thick and thin on their journey to independence’.
JusB helps young people aged 10 - 23 during both term time and school holidays. This work includes advice and guidance to help them find a job or stay on in education. There is also a homework club and projects to help develop new skills like urban music, craft, cookery and video animation. Young people are encouraged to support each other and be good ambassadors in their community.
There are lots of ways to help from collecting old stamps, to a regular standing order or volunteering. For more information, visit www.jusb.co.uk, see the board at the back of church, call 020 8464 2722 or visit during their next Open House: 20 March 3.30-7pm.
