We are GYIP
We are a nonprofit organisation with the aim of delivering empowering and meaningful youth work to all children and young people within the Glasgow Govan area. We aim to provide support, information and advice to anyone who makes use of our services (regardless of gender, sexual orientation, religious belief or racial group), and we are committed to the development and regeneration of our local community.
We deliver a variety of different topics in local high schools during PSE classes. Such issues covered are drugs, alcohol, bullying and mental health.

"I have seen first hand the excellent work the GYIP carries out in schools having had the opportunity to join in with sessions that they have delivered covering topics such as drug and alcohol awareness and the dangers of smoking. GYIP provides a great service to the young people in the area, building up good relationships with them. Each topic delivered by them is covered in a such a way that it is easily identifiable with the young people it is being delivered to, which allows the subject matter to be understood by them. " Constable Leigh McPartland
"We have found GYIP a pleasure to work with. They are most professional in all that they do and are always willing to help. Indeed, they have deep insights into the key areas that Juliette and I are interested in. This ‘thinking’ has been essential to our research that is funded by RSA (Scotland). Going forward, I do hope that this strategic partnership can continue for many years to come. Of note, I also think that they do an excellent job with the many stakeholders and, of course, the youth population that they work with."

"GYIP staff have an excellent rapport with pupils of all ages and stages and some of our pupils and ex pupils volunteer with the organisation and this contributes to their CV and future prospects." K Sweeney, Depute Head Teacher, Govan High
