Centre for Youth Ministry
In 1998 Ridley became one of the founding partners of the Centre for Youth Ministry (CYM). This radical initiative has grown beyond all expectations and is now one of the largest full-time youth work training courses in the UK.
CYM students leave Ridley to pursue a variety of paths, working with children and young people in community, church and school-based contexts across the UK and overseas. Recent graduates are bringing their training to bear today in diverse situations, from building relationships with the disaffected youth of a deprived area of London to supporting vulnerable young women at a residential project in southern Brazil.
