At Colin Glen Trust, one of our guiding principles is to create a safe place for young people to come, to learn, to grow and to provide opportunities to local youth across areas such as employment and training.

Prince’s Trust Program

Young people need opportunities. At Colin Glen Trust, in association with the Prince’s Trust, that’s exactly what we strive for. Every young person is valued, their ideas listened to and they are encouraged to follow their dreams.

It’s a safe place to grow, do well and excel. 

We welcome all young people, from all walks of life, all communities, all backgrounds and offer education, training and support.

The Prince’s Trust programme was the kick start I needed to get my life back on track, I learned new skills and developed a greater sense of confidence which has helped me improve my opportunities for future employment
