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.
Kirkcaldy YMCA is a vibrant local community hub for children, young people and families providing a wide range of programmes all year round and involving large numbers of volunteers.
Our programmes operate in our main premises at Valley Gardens but also in premises in Dysart and in Gallatown. We are a very busy youth centre committed to enabling vulnerable young people to achieve their potential in every way possible.
We believe that every young person, no matter how hard their start in life may have been, has the potential to succeed and to thrive, it’s just a matter of finding out where their individual talent lies. In Kirkcaldy YMCA we aim to offer a wide range of opportunity across many different areas that can make it easy for young people to find that potential.
