Artillery Youth Centre is a youth led project based in the Northside area of Belfast. Working with young adults, the centre operates seven days per week and delivers a range of programming from accredited training to residentials and recreational activities. There are a number of projects based at the centre including the New Lodge Area Project, the Second Chance Programme, Unattached Youth Project, Youth Savings Union and Youthbank, Artillery Cyber Cafe, the Youth Information Project and the Young Parents Project.

We work with young adults in the 15-25 age range to deliver a range of innovative strategies to empower local young people and to redress the imbalance in representation of young people in decision making positions. Staffed by qualified youth workers , Artillery is a professional project that is at the forefront of youth participation.

A community based youth project, Artillery maintains the highest standards of creativity and professionalism. We are funded by a range of initiatives and charitable trusts including Comic Relief, the Irish Youth Foundation, the Department of Employment and Learning and the Big Lottery Fund.
