Here at the YMCA Sutton Coldfield, our youth work programme engages with young people in order to promote confidence and self-esteem and to help young people achieve. We support and encourage young people to reflect on their values and make informed decisions about their lives and the communities that they are part of.
By coming along to a YMCA, a young person can become part of an inclusive community; that’s our youth-minded community approach.
We tailor our services to meet the needs of young people in different areas of North and East Birmingham with a range of different programmes and locations to help young people fulfill their full potential, whatever their faith, culture or background.
