JIMS Youth Centre

In the Spring of 1998 a 12-week pilot youth project was set up in Kilkeel. The premises (kindly donated) were laid out in the theme of Star Trek and was called JIMS. The project offered a soft drinks bar, snack food, music, games such as darts, pool and play stations etc.

Since then, JIMS has expanded and grown into the centre that the community calls JIMS.  We target youth and adults alike for various programmes.  JIMS holds numerous theme events in our new end as well has hosting regular drop-in Friday and Saturday nights each weekend.  Check out our programme page for further details.
