Putting Young People First

The Project has delivered quality youth work services to young people within Govanhill for 20 years. We are now entering our 21st year with a real sense of excitement and enthusiasm for the work ahead of us. Over the past year we have further developed our programme with young people, engaged with the work and developed new initiatives for engaging young people not taking up services. This has lead to the project having one of its most successful programmes in recent years with over 120 individual young people participating in our activities or receiving support from the Project.

The main focus and ethos of our work is ‘putting young people first’ and valuing them as creative and positive members of the community. To help achieve this we have a skilled team of workers who engage with young people as individuals that have a valid contribution to make to the future betterment of the community they live in and not as an anti-social problem that has to be controlled or criminalised. To help us achieve this we engage young people using a variety of methods but always in a positive and creative environment.

I've been at the GYP for a while and its the best thing about Govanhill. I've met so many people and have had so many opportunities to increase my skills and show my work.
