1. Young People – We will provide the best possible learning experiences and programmes for Young People:
Greenhill YMCA will evaluate all programme work with young people and seek to improve the quality, effectiveness and relevance of it’s provision, by building on ‘what works’, refreshing what is/has become tired but remains relevant and developing new ‘bespoke’ programmes to meet emerging and identified needs. The primary focus will remain on ‘disadvantaged young people and their communities’, and on CR/Good Relations – this does not, however, preclude other types of programmes or beneficiaries. We will look for opportunities and resources to enhance our work with local young people and communities. The aspiration and intention is for quality over quantity; relevance and distinctiveness over mediocrity.
2. Site and Facilities – We will develop the Greenhill Site and Facilities to their full potential:
Greenhill YMCA will improve the ‘welcome facilities’ and overall visual impact of the centre for visitors. New and as yet unconsidered possibilities for the use of the Greenhill site will be developed for the realisation of the full potential of the site. The ‘Village Greenhill’ concept will be researched/explored. There will be further, increased and on-going development and investment in the site and facilities to ensure the maximization of its potential and the provision of the best possible learning opportunities for our customers and participants. Capacity of residential spaces and site facilities will be expanded to meet the growing demand and increase sustainability
3. Faith and Diversity – We will be clear and open about our Christian Faith & encourage Diversity:
Greenhill YMCA will be clear, both internally and publicly, about its Christian Faith principles/perspective and we will be similarly clear about the organisations openness to welcome and encourage/facilitate others (both individuals and groups) to come with and explore their own particular spiritual/faith beliefs and experiences within the Greenhill setting. A safe, facilitating, open, non-judgemental and nurturing environment will be provided for the exploration and sharing of faith alongside and within a context of increasing cultural, social, political and religious diversity
