What we do
Our young adult members aged 12 to 18 years come along every Monday evening between 6pm and 8pm to meet up with friends and generally 'hang out' together.
These young people don't feel the need to have structured activities as our younger members but prefer to sit around and talk and play music.
Our volunteer youth workers are always on site to give support, advice and guidance. A young women's group is also up and running on a Thursday evening between 6pm - 8pm, where our ladies like to participate in baking, cooking, jewellery making, hair and beauty activities.
A Youth Cafe is now open at the YMCA on a Friday evening between 7pm - 9pm for young people aged between 18 - 25 years. This is a partnership between Barnardos, East Ayrshire Council and Kilmarnock YMCA. This drop in has been operating for approcimately 8 weeks and is slowly gaining momentum - albeit slow, young people are hearing about it and coming along.
