JusB is a community-based youth centre that works with young people during their journey to independence, helping them to make the most of their potential. Over our 20 years we have worked with thousands of young people. We are a thriving club in the heart of the Bromley area, which is fast becoming a vibrant and diverse community. Our mission statement 'to serve young people by accompanying them through thick and thin on their journey to independence' is even more relevant in today’s environment, as many young people and families struggle to cope in difficult times.
Through the year we strive to offer young people a variety of activities which will enable them to be better equipped for life's journey
We are appreciative of everyone who supports us in so many ways ... those who offer hours of volunteering and those who support us financially ... we could not continue without them and for this we are extremely grateful.

WE DID IT !
Thanks to your fantastic support we have reached our fundraising target of £75,000. A big thank you to all who have supported from all of us here at JusB. When we started out on this goal, we knew it would be a massive task but we did not bank on the generosity of our supporters. With your help, JusB can continue to work with the young people of Bromley.
It will also allow us the time to, hopefully, put in place a longer term financing plan so that our vital services for young people can continue well into the future. So please continue to visit our website for details.
The gofundme page having achieved its aim and has been closed, but you will be able to continue to support us via the website, or by other means via our office.
Thank you again for being part of this amazing effort.
Our work is vital to the young people of Bromley and we have 20 years of experience behind us of doing some fantastic work.
A THANK YOU AND FEEDBACK FROM A PARENT FROM OUR STEPPING UP CLUB...
My daughter attended throughout year 6 at Stepping Up club through the youth center.
> When she received a leaflet about the summer project, she was super-duper excited about it.
> She has attended three weeks with joy and big smiles on her face. Even when we planned a family outings, she begged us to let her go to the JusB instead!
> When I asked her what was great about the club, she just simple said: " Absolutely everything!"
> The variety of activities and programmes were all well organised and presented.
> As a parent it has given me a reassurance knowing that she is in an environment where learning important life skills and also trying exciting new things and all involves fun and laughter.
> She is very keen to come back in short space of time, once she's settled in at her secondary school.
> It is a big step for anyone changing environment, so I am absolutely sure, that the transition will be much easier with the fantastic support from JusB.
> We are just so grateful for finding this community and support!
> Big thank you for the amazing opportunity and equally huge thanks to the lovely people who are involved helping tirelessly the local families.

Making a buzz with Wax Chandlers and Beeline for the Lord Mayor's Show
On Saturday the 13th November JusB was privileged to be invited to be part of the Lord Mayor’s Show. We were invited to join the parade by the Worshipful Company of Wax Chandlers. The float was designed by Make a bee line and was to show the importance of bees in our society. For weeks previous to the day young people at JusB helped make candles and bees that were to be displayed on the float and accompanying bee hives which sat on electric cargo bikes. The float was also pulled by an electric bike. Two of our young people dressed up as bees ( made by Tina our Youth worker) attended the parade.
Our Project Manager, Ned, was wearing a beekeeper's costume for the occasion. This was a great opportunity and one which were very grateful to be part of.
