At Oxgangs Neighbourhood Centre, received funding from Pentland Neighbourhood Partnership and Foundation Scotland and asked YMCA Edinburgh to help set up and run a Friday afterschool club for young people in Primary 4-7 struggling with isolation or socialising. The club provides games and activities that encourage group work, co-operation and the development of friendships
In all our youth clubs and youth work programmes we aim to increase young people's skills, self esteem and confidence and help them to work towards their personal aspirations.
We run a range youth work programmes across the city, often working in partnership with other agencies and churches.
Our current programme includes:
Fridays 5.30-7pm Football Session
