Charity description

theGKexperience logo
theGKexperience is a Youth Work Charity founded on the belief that young people are brilliant and that they all deserve the same opportunities in order to enable them to reach their potential. Our focus is supporting vulnerable young people who live in the 10% most disadvantaged areas of Scotland.  

 1) Residential experiences model community living, developing positive, respectful relationships and use the arts, cookery, development of life skills and issue-based working, as well as exciting outdoor activities.

2) Local Work: We want to build positive relationships with young people, on their terms, and this means being involved on a regular basis in their communities, offering in partnership with existing local projects opportunities for their development and growth.

3) The Young Team is a young leaders programme, where young people are identified and invited to be part of an intensive period of training and self-development, whilst learning alongside others more experienced and re-employing their new found skills and confidence in local community settings, as well as team on residentials.


We are a small charity with big aspirations for the young people we support.  Money that you donate will be used to fund our activities throughout the year, up to 14 residential trips, 3 weekly clubs, our young leaders programme and our support with the most vulnerable which includes home visits and mentoring.


Charity No: SCO43023
