We are a busy busy project and we've recognised that we're often so focused on doing our jobs that we sometimes forget to promote just how much positive work we do. This is why we have finally decided to set up a 'DRC Youth Project' Twitter account! Twitter is the perfect online platform for the DRC to showcase the strength of support we are providing the hardest to reach young people in the communities of Yoker, Scotstoun and Whiteinch. It's also a great way for us to promote the positive contributions young people are making within each community. We will be using Twitter on a daily basis to keep  people in the loop with the giant strides we are making in youth employability throughout the NW with our partners Workingrite and we will also utilise the platform to keep everyone up to date with session times, upcoming events and all the latest DRC info.  

Here's our page: Please follow us!

5k Fun Run - Family Fundraising Day in Scotstoun.

Massive respect to 7 of our members from the Scotstoun Club (aged 12-19 years). The 7 boys took part in a fundraising initiative at the 'Heart of Scotstoun' Community Centre (HOS). The boys ran 5km and managed to raise £150 for the centre! Outstanding stuff. We're proud of the effort they put in and we wish HOS all the best with the rest of their fundraising. The community has really rallied together to support the centre and we are delighted to see DRC members and young people from the local area contributing their time and effort to help maintain this valuable community asset. 

SURF Awards

Last night the DRC staff attended the annual SURF awards at Glasgow's Grand Central Hotel. The DRC was one of three projects shortlisted in the 'Youth Employment: Overcoming Barriers' category.  

Each of the projects shortlisted "...delivered meaningful physical, social and economic outcomes in places facing major poverty, depopulation and disconnection challenges". Unfortunately we did not win on this occasion but we will be back next year to showcase the DRC and the positive work we carry out together with young people in the NW of the city. 

PS. Congratulaitons to 'Link Living Step On'! Another fantastic project doing supporting young people in Scotland.
