And our celebrations haven’t ended yet!

Throughout 2017, we will continue to highlight and celebrate some of our success stories and the young people who have benefitted from our vital work. We will also outline how we continue to expand our programmes and work, across Greater Manchester today.

Although we have achieved amazing things, we still need your support to help us grow and reach the lives of many other young people.

You can support us by sponsoring, donating or fundraising, and we guarantee that for every £1 we receive, 80p will go straight out to our programme delivery.

GMYN's Celebration event of the year at the BBC

Greater Manchester Youth Network held their annual Celebration event at the BBC in Media City on 15th December 2015.

The event celebrated and showcased the hard work that all of the volunteers, young people and contributors have put in to make GMYN the Charity it is today.

As an Oscar themed event the main focus was short films. The projects that GMYN delivers, Boom, Boots and Beats, Carousel, Health Action Champions, NotJustA, South Youth Focus and Greater Manchester Talent Match - created individual films to be judged by the BBC and the audience on the night for a special award.

The BBC awarded Greater Manchester Talent Match the choice award, they selected the film created by the Youth Panel because they thought it had a clear message, it showed how Talent Match supports young people and the journey the young people go on.

Our project Boom won the audience majority vote on the night with their film about the two groups Bury and Rochdale competing, the film had a positive spin with both groups saying they enjoy spending time together.
