  • Title: Who we are - Christian Youth Association Scotland
    Descriptive info: History of the YMCA.. YMCA is a global youth work organisation active in 125 countries with 45 million members worldwide.. The YMCA has been a foundational base for youth work practice since 1844.. The Scottish movement is made up of 36 autonomous local associations each of which is governed locally by a volunteer Board and develops its programme in response to local needs.. These associations can stretch from large organisations employing hundreds of staff in multiple programme areas, as we do in Glasgow, to youth centres such as Gatehouse of Fleet YMCA where the youth worker always knows exactly how many young people are  ...   share and develop best practice and to connect to the international movement.. Local YMCAs deliver provision for vulnerable children, young people and families from over 120 sites across Scotland.. At the heart of YMCAs work in Scotland lie key principles of our Christian mission, service to those in the greatest need, involvement of volunteers and encouraging children and young people to achieve their fullest potential in life.. YMCA's vision is maintained and developed through a national system of quality standards which each local YMCA is required to undergo every five years.. Called, 'Working Towards Excellence' this system captures and reinforces who we are as YMCA..

  • Title: What we do - YMCA Christian Youth Association Scotland
    Descriptive info: Community Based Youth Work.. Youth Justice.. Family Support Programmes.. Employment & Training.. International Programmes.. Policy & Campaigns.. Accommodation & Support Services.. Health and Wellbeing.. Childcare.. YMCA provision in different communities will serve very different needs.. We are an organisation driven to serve local needs so our work in the centre of Glasgow will reflect the needs of the community in the city.. In the same way our work in Portree on the Isle of Skye will reflect the needs of that small rural community.. These needs will of course be very different.. At the core of our being lies service to vulnerable young people and we approach this calling with a number of core commitments:.. a) Safe Healthy Development.. YMCA wants to make sure that every young person it encounters will ultimately be enabled to achieve his/her fullest potential.. We continually work to ensure that every young person in our care will experience unconditional love and acceptance and a place of safety and comfort.. b)  ...   them' or for them'.. In this way we partner with children, young people and families by working to enable them to improve their skills, to take opportunities and to transform their lives for the better.. c) The Highest Standards.. YMCA Scotland operates a quality standards system called Working Towards Excellence that was highly commended by the HMIE Inspection report in 2009.. Every YMCA is required to undergo the process at least once every five years involving all stakeholders including volunteers, young people, users, staff etc in an assessment of the organisation and its practice.. The type of programme that YMCA delivers can change in response to local needs but will often reflect some of the fields of work laid out below:.. - Centre-based youth work inc youth leadership MSYPs.. - Street-based youth work.. - Early Intervention Prevention.. - Family support Programmes.. - Accommodation Support Services.. - Childcare.. - Employment Training (inc the College and PB).. - Refugees and Asylum seekers.. - International Programmes.. - Policy Development..

  • Title: Supporting Our Work - YMCA Scotland Christian Youth Association
    Descriptive info: There are many ways in which you can support vulnerable children, young people and families in partnership with the YMCA.. It is increasingly clear to us that we need to better engage with our vulnerable young men and women across Scotland before they develop behaviours and habits that can ruin their lives.. We know that along with some of our partner charities we can change young people at risk to support them to achieve their fullest potential.. Our main frustration in this today is the dramatically reducing public finances and the subsequent reduced capacity for us to intervene to save wasted young lives.. One of the big encouragements  ...   had the same privileges or opportunities in life.. Whether you have time to help us to serve and support children, young people and families or whether you can help by supporting our work financially we treasure your support and we recognise the absolutely vital role of all our supporters in our vision for Scotland.. Can I assure you that all commitments of both time and money to YMCA Scotland will only be used in Scotland and that our costs will always be kept to an absolute minimum.. We work to a policy of integrity and openness and will always welcome your questions about how we might use donations..
