Lisburn YMCA has provided education and school based services since1995. Using this experience of working within, alongside and as an alternative to traditional education services has enabled us to provide a range of needs led services throughout the Belfast and South Eastern Trust Areas.
All of our Education Services aim to promote personal development and impact on knowledge, behaviour and attitudes in key areas of health and education.
Education Support services promote opportunities for parent and /or pupils to engage with services, encourage positive school experiences and address any challenges faced by school life.
Health Education services provide school and community based interventions for young people to prevent and reduce the harm of alcohol and drug misuse.
Services are largely evidence based or evidence informed with outcomes measured on an ongoing basis to ensure effectiveness and relevance to participants.
