Youth, Family & Community Projects

  • Team YP

    Team YP provides positive activities to improve confidence, health and wellbeing. Young people will have the opportunity to choose their activities as a group and experience a variety of unique opportunities to engage and inspire.

  • GLOW mentoring & coaching

    Southend YMCA has extensive experience in mentoring and coaching. Whether it’s younger children, young people in the transition to adulthood, or young adults who are unemployed our personalised, strengths-based approach has helped individuals to achieve their goals, overcome barriers and develop self-esteem and confidence.

  • FYV

    FYV is a brand-new initiative funded by The National Lottery Community Fund that empowers young people to have their voices heard on the issues they care about.

    The project not only listens to the concerns and aspirations of young people, it also provides them with the opportunity, skills and resources to take a pro-active role in making a real difference to their community.

  • Bump to Breast

    Whether you are pregnant, have a newborn, an older baby or a toddler, we are here to support you in your breastfeeding journey. If you need advice on any breastfeeding issue, or have any questions about breastfeeding, do get in touch! Please do follow us on facebook too, and tune into our livestreams, so that we can build a breastfeeding community together in Southend.
