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.
The Tain Youth Café is a purpose built facility for young people in the middle of the town that is open five nights a week as a youth centre attracting up to 120 young people from the town and the neighbouring villages.
A busy programme of activities and events is designed around the needs of the young people in Tain with a strong focus on developing young leaders physically, spiritually and emotionally. Streetwork, sports programmes that tour the Highlands and a wide range of groupwork add to high profile events that together make Tain YMCA a transformational place for local young people.
