Greater Manchester Youth Network is a youth organisation that provides opportunities for young people and supports youth organisations that work within Greater Manchester.
Our work with young people has a focus on social action and, in particular, volunteering. We have developed and delivered a number of innovative programmes and projects. Most of these programmes are based on a model that incorporates a number of voluntary activities with non-formal learning sessions.
These programmes have been delivered, evaluated and improved on a continual basis and are now fully developed and can be adapted to meet the needs of different target groups.
We work to enable young people and organisations to participate, develop and achieve. We aim to do this by offering a variety of activities that will engage and empower young people and by capacity building the organisations that work with them.
We work with some of the most disadvantaged young people in the country including those not in education, employment or training, asylum seekers, looked after children and disabled young people.
Young people are the primary focus for the organisation but the network also includes organisations that work with children and young people, organisations that involve volunteers and individuals with an interest in youth work.
