Training & Education

We believe that every person should be able to fulfill their potential.


We have established partnerships with a wide range of statutory and voluntary agencies within Swansea.  The diversity represented in our staff team, the central location of our accessible building, helps ensure this is reflected in our client group.


Together with Swansea Museum we created a history documentary about YMCA Swansea as part of National Museums Wales’ Winter of Wellbeing project.

Throughout February and March we held filming and editing sessions to teach young people new skills, and to give them the chance to appear in the documentary.

Understanding Young Carers Training

YMCA Swansea’s Understanding Young Carers training raises awareness of Young Carers to professionals working with Young People.


In partnership with the EU Solidarity Corps and the Welsh Centre For International Affairs we are providing opportunities for long term and short term exchange programmes for young people from Europe and Swansea.

Glyndwr Uni

During 2019, Youth Work students from Glyndwr university and YMCA Youth Work team, worked in partnership to consult with young people in South Wales on their views and understanding of the purpose of youth work. These views contributed to the young person’s version of the Welsh Governments Youth Work Strategy.

Senior Leader Training

Partnership working between Swansea Youth Service and YMCA Swansea has enabled the training and development of young youth leaders. Young people gain work experience and Agored Cymru Certificate for accreditation in Senior Member training.
