About YMCA Youth Services

YMCA Evolve is run by YMCA Youth Services. At YMCA Youth Services, we help young people to be heard and reach their potential in life. The Y acts as a platform to empower young people to have their voices heard. Youth Services helps young people to build up their skills, develop their support networks, find a job, and connect with their community. We do this through our four program areas: staff development, learning & leadership, social impact and Y Spaces. Our programs build strength and resilience.
