The reason for YG

The reason for YG
 

This week I had a great experience which reminded me of why we do what we do. A young person rang the door bell at YG, he was one of the first young people on the team programme when we started it Feb last year. He popped in to tell us how well he was doing and to remind us that it was because of YG that he was doing well. His mindset, attitude and outlook had changed on life. He is now living independently in a flat, attending college everyday and managing his own money most of the time! We all need a little help sometimes.

The thing that struck me about the young person is how he talked about the tough love we showed him at YG, the desire of the staff to help him but a clear message that he had to help himself to achieve what he wanted in life. A feeling we would support him but he had to help us to do that. If that's the message that young people leave YG with I am very happy with that and look forward to the next ringing of the doorbell from young people wishing to visit to share their stories.
