GMYN is a youth charity that creates opportunities so that disadvantaged young people from across Greater Manchester can take steps towards a positive future. We support them to be safe, valued and ambitious.
We improve the lives of 13 to 25 year-olds with experience of care, unemployment, disability or other forms of social isolation.
We also provide support in safeguarding and quality assurance to other youth organisations, as well as opportunities to share expertise, skills and knowledge around engaging and empowering young people.
Founded in 2007, we have grown from a single volunteering project to a registered charity, delivering over 12 programmes across GM.
In early 2017 we were awarded the PQASSO Quality Mark (Practical Quality Assurance System for Small Organisations) at level 2, the highest level available for UK charities.
Our vision is #YoungPeopleCan
