We create opportunities for young people to grow in confidence explore new possibilities and thrive.

Go! Youth Trust is a Christian charity that supports young people to grow, explore and thrive. Working across Central Scotland with young people aged 7-25, we are passionate about helping young people get the best start in life.

For some this simply means having somewhere to go and feel safe, for others this means having a conversation every week with a positive role model while others need help gaining qualifications in an environment which is tailor made to ensure they can achieve their potential.

Whatever young people are looking for they can find the support they need at Go! Youth Trust to make an impact in the world.

    Zach was having trouble maintaining relationships with pupils and teachers while at school.

    This led to Zach’s school attendance being really poor and, when he did attend, he would often find himself struggling and getting angry.  Zach’s mum had been sending him along to Go! Youth Trust residentials and drop-ins since we was at Primary School and asked if he could join our mentoring programme.

    Since being matched with his mentor, Ethan, Zach’s life is slowly being transformed.  He is achieving qualifications that he never thought would be possible and has learned new coping mechanisms to deal with some of the tougher situations that he experiences.

    Watch Zach’s story below!
