G20 Youth Festival

ABOUT

COVID - 19 

When the COVID crisis started we decided to help our community.  The young people came up with an idea to feed the community and support self-isolation. They have been delivering a meals on wheels project  three days a week and food parcels on a further two days.  The project has been running since the first week of lockdown. We've hired a professional chef to cook nutritious and healthy food and we're currently crowdfunding to make our project sustainable         bit.ly/foodfromthewood

 

About G20

The G20 Youth Festival is a postcode based youth club led by young people in Maryhill, Glasgow. The project was founded in 2018 and aims to empower young people to develop their passions and interests and to reach their potential. We co-ordinate diversionary activities for  young people such as climbing, hip hop, forest school and graffiti. Our approach has been influenced by the work of the  Violence Reduction Unit, Swedish Youth Festival Mitt127 and the Adverse Childhood Experiences research.

The project has grown out of The Children's Wood charity and  evolved through working with young people outdoors on the Children's Wood and Meadow and in the wider community. Through working with young people in this way we have learned more about their needs and wishes and this has led to us finding an indoor base: The G20 Youth House.

 

Developing relationships and building trust with young people is at the heart of the G20 Youth Festival; the Adverse Childhood Experiences research has impacted our work and how we approach our young people. 

We take a whole community approach and have been supported by local organisations like Patrick Thistle Charitable Trust, Tesco and McDonalds.
