These clubs and activities are open access to all young people and are often the first point of contact between young people and youth work services. YMCA youth work is committed to making a difference for all young people and contributing to the National Youth Work Outcomes:
Through various workshops, we support young people as they gain confidence using digital technology in ways that are relevant to them and to their aspirations.
YMCAs in Paisley and Perth are supporting young people as they set up small digital social enterprises. Through this, young people get the opportunity to work alongside industry experts whilst acquiring vital work experience.
Recent research has shown that girls are under-represented in Stem (science, technology, engineering and maths) occupations. To address this, Paisley YMCA has set up a STEM for girls workshops which now welcomes over 45 young girls a week.
