Edinburgh West

The Story So Far...

Young Life International in Edinburgh West began in 2015 when a group of caring adults began meeting regularly to pray for young people in the centre and west of the city and invited Young Life International staff to begin youth work with local young people.

After establishing strong and healthy ministry there, with clubs and bible studies for both 11 - 14s and 14 - 18s, as well as a team of staff and volunteer leaders spending time building relationships with young people and a supportive adult committee, opportunities to begin in other parts of Edinburgh are beginning to arise.

Supporting young people at the following secondary schools in the centre and west of the city: Tynecastle HS, Boroughmuir HS, George Heriots, St Augustine's, St Thomas of Aquins, George Watsons College, James Gillespies HS.

If you're a young person or student, you’re invited.

And if you're an adult who cares about young people, there are a number of ways to get involved.
