Our Growing2gether programmes connect young people to their community as mentors to children in need of extra support and through the opportunity to deliver youth-led community projects. They are the main programmes in Scotland of youth/children’s charity, Ecologia Youth Trust.

We believe in giving all young people the chance to realise their unique potential. We build their mental health, educational engagement and life skills so that they can contribute to stronger communities.
