The Young Roots programme is an innovative project to capture the oral history of the YMCA one of Scotland’s oldest youth organisations. Sharing the Past to Shape the Future uses an inter-generational approach, led by our young people from YMCAs across Scotland, capturing oral histories from across the nation.
YMCA in Perth focuses on building positive and supportive relationships with young people. Most young people want “somewhere to go, something to do and someone to talk to” and Perth YMCA tries to provide that in ways that suit many different individuals. This is normally done through one of their many projects such as the Prince’s Trust Team Programme, Y Media and Plusone Mentoring.
