Scalloway Youth Centre is a vibrant hub in the centre of Scalloway where children, young people and adults can meet in a safe and welcoming environment.
Scalloway has the only purpose built youth centre in Shetland and it was opened on 9th November 1996. The Youth Centre is owned and managed by Trustees and a Management Committee. The Management Committee is made up of representatives from affiliated groups, the Trust and independent interested people from the community.
There are 9 Trustees who are responsible for the fabric of the building and car park/civic square area and the Management Committee of 12 people are responsible for the day to day running and development of the centre. All of these people are volunteers who give up their time willingly to ensure that the Youth Centre continues to thrive.
The Youth Centre also has a Youth Committee who are the voice for young people bringing their views and issues to the Management Committee.
There are a number of external groups that hire out the centre, some of them afflliated and some not e.g. there is a very active Rainbows & Brownies Group that meets on a Monday night; a Junior Youth Club and Senior Youth Club run by Shetland Islands Council Youth Services on a Wednesday night; a music group that meets every Friday evening and over the winter months a family traditional dance group is organised through the management committee. There is also the monthly Cafe Church who meet every second Sunday of the month and various one off bookings and hires throughout the year.
