YMCA Scotland Announces launch of Voice website.6 June 2016
To mark our 172nd Birthday and to coincide with the World YMCAs World Challenge 2016, YMCA Scotland has launched its YMCA Voice Website
YMCA Scotland decided it wanted to provide a space for the issues that young people face and a way for their voices to be heard. Often young people’s voices are too easily ignored, their issues pushed aside. We decided to challenge this.
The voices website is part of YMCA Scotland’s Voice Group. A team of Ambassadors from across YMCAs in Scotland ready to stand up for their peers. A combination of Youth Leaders, Change Agents, Volunteers, Heritage Ambassadors, European Representatives and most importantly young people with real issues.
The website, launched today, is honest, its real, its fresh. It contains the voice of Jamie, a homeless person who got help from Cumbernauld YMCA. The voice of a group of young people at Dumfries YMCA who got together to talk about what affects them. And the team at Aberdeen YMCA, who came together to show us what affects them and what they are doing about it. Alongside posts from local YMCA the website includes guest posts with the aim to educate and inspire young people.
The website launch today is just the start, as voice grows so will the website, Young people across Scotland are encouraged to get involved and submit content. To tell us your stories, so as a voice group we can respond.
