Carrickfergus YMCA is a Christian based,
non-denominational, cross community charity
that exists to sustain a caring community
to enable the Borough's young people to
fulfill their potential for good.
The Association's mission is to support,
without stigma or prejudice, all young
people and in particular those who are at
risk from social exclusion, marginalisation
or spiritual homelessness.
Carrickfergus has few facilities for young
people who are at risk. Sadly many of
whom are caught up in paramilitary-led
organised crime - the horrendous legacy
of the Northern Ireland conflict. Breaking
the destructive cycle of hate and restoring
confidence to individuals and the community
are fundamental aims of the YMCA.
