Employability - YMCA DownsLink Group


A series of programmes and interventions for young people delivered by staff.

The young people we work with can sometimes find themselves on the fringes of society, and as such can feel the opportunities afforded to others are not within their reach. As a result, they may find it difficult to engage with formal programmes due to a variety of reasons, including a lack of confidence, distrust or insecurity.

We have designed a series of programmes and interventions which have ‘mindset’ at the core and are delivered by staff that the young people trust. Our dedicated and skilled staff aim to reach those who, with the right support, could realise the huge potential within them.

Our employability offer aims to address a series of knowledge gaps and assist in a responsive manner by tapping into the interests and learning styles of the young people we work with. We are building a series of accredited and non-accredited options, both internally and in partnership with other providers, to give our young people the skills to not just succeed, but to thrive.

We are always looking for partners who can help us deliver a responsive and needs based service, be that through funding or volunteering.

YMCA enables people to develop their full potential in mind, body and spirit. Inspired by and faithful to our Christian values, we create supportive, inclusive and energising communities, where young people can truly belong, contribute and thrive.
