I dropped in today to the Callander Youth Project which lives in the Leisure Centre in Callendar. I’m glad to be able to say that the SEC is one of its financial supporters. With a staff of seven and close links to McLaren High School next door, they offer 12 different youth initiatives and projects. I took a look at Compass – described as a dedicated support service for young people in the High School. I asked all the questions about young people in the rural community. I suspect that there are many young people who are isolated and bored and have all sorts of issues and problems – and working with them is demanding. The results, as always, come slowly – but, when it happens, there is something magical about seeing young people gaining confidence and interacting positively with the world.
