We are GMYN and our mission is to enable young people to have a positive impact on their lives and the wider community

What we do

Greater Manchester Youth Network (GMYN) supports young people aged 10-25 across Greater Manchester by offering innovative and exciting opportunities to build key skills and confidence.

We deliver a range of development programmes and drop-in activities to help young people transition to adulthood feeling supported, positive, and valued.

“GMYN has turned my life around. If it weren’t for them, I don’t know where I’d be right now – they are like my family”
