Perth and District YMCA is committed to providing opportunities for young people across Perth and Kinross.
Change, for most of us, happens because of the people we know; friends, family, school friends and work mates – they all affect who we are. Relationships matter to us. Building relationships is what we do at Perth YMCA.
You know someone better when you do something together. At Perth and District YMCA, we offer the chance to do different activities together; building relationships and impacting lives.
All of the volunteers and staff at Perth YMCA put their time and energy into empowering young people to engage in positive relationships with us and with other young people.
Most of the time our young people just need somewhere to go; a place where they can meet and get to know each other. This is why we can be found in so many different places; The Y Centre – YMCA’s own premises in the City Centre – in local schools, out and about in town, and in local churches running youth groups.
Perth & District YMCA is also connected with YMCA’s across the world through YMCA Scotland, YMCA Europe and YMCA International. This means that we are able to offer opportunities and have access to resources far beyond our capacity as a small charity. As part of this global movement, we have ties all over the world that are accessible by our young people to explore far beyond their own backyards through volunteer programmes, leadership conferences and the direct connections that have been made.
