The highlight of our most recent AGM was without a doubt, hearing from our young people about their experiences of Paisley YMCA over this past year. In this short film, we hear conversations about what they love about Paisley YMCA, the challenges of online youth clubs and the importance of friendship and connection.
The interview “delve[s] into digital youth work, the digital divide, and challenges for young people and youth workers engaging online”.
This podcast about ‘Digital Youth Work’ references the work of Paisley YMCA a couple of times, and it’s a good place to start in understanding what’s meant by ‘digital youth work’.
The references to Paisley YMCA are a result of the pioneering work by our community learning and development team which has established the Renfrewshire Digital Academy, led by Darran Gillan, our Youth and Programme Development Manager.
