Successful YTime MyTime Residential

December, 2013

Nine of the young men from Group 4 of YTime MyTime recently took part in a residential activity based weekend at Greenhill YMCA in Newcastle. The lads had a great time doing lazer tag in the forest, playing football, doing night line and bouldering down the river in Tollymore Forest Park. They gave it their all and there was not one word spoken on the bus home until we pulled up at the YMCA! Well done boys!

YES! Programme, For Young People With Disabilities

November, 2013


YES! means Youth Engagement Support.  The programme is to support young people with disabilities in the community to access mainstream youth activities.  Lurgan YMCA YES! programme is just that.  Meeting each Wednesday night form 1900-2100hrs here at the YMCA.  Most young people are referred to us from the Trust but not all, so get involved.    Also to run this programme many volunteers and buddies are needed, so if you can support this please get in touch.  Buddies are 15-18 yrs old who want to do something productive, get experience for UCAS or the Millennium Award or Duke of Ed or just have something worth while on their CV.  If you want to know more, contact Kathy Dawson here at the YMCA 3831 1025 or   The photos are from our 2013 summer scheme where we took the guys canoeing in Lurgan Park Lake.  A new challenge for some and a chance to socialise with friends from YES!  Hope to see you here really soon….
