130 years of Merseyside Youth Association

Established in 1890, as the Liverpool Union of Girls Clubs, 2020 will see us celebrate our 130th Birthday!

We're so proud of our history and very excited about the events we have planned this year to mark 130 years of changing young people’s lives, the details of which will be released very soon!

There's so much history to MYA we've decided to capture these memories and make a book, and we need YOUR help!

Please get in touch and share your stories of MYA, the Boys Association or Union of Girls clubs. Did you meet your partner at one of our youth clubs, learn a skill that has changed your life, made friends that you still see today? We want to know how we have impacted your lives!
