Background

Growing2gether is the only programme in Scotland to pair young people facing disadvantage as mentors to children needing additional support and combine this with classroom training in life skills. This early intervention programme builds well-being, skills and attainment. We tackle the barriers that prevent young people reaching their unique potential, including poor mental health, poverty, challenging behaviour and disengagement from school and society.

Our vision

A world where all young people can realise their unique potential, improve their lives for the long term, and contribute to stronger communities.

Our mission

We give young people facing disadvantage the support they need to thrive, raising aspiration and to make positive choices in their lives. We build their mental health, educational engagement and life skills, so that they can contribute to their communities.

Ecologia is committed to support young people to find long-term solutions to their problems and those of their communities. We aim to support young people and children to raise their self-belief and aspiration and to grow

into their unique and abundant potential as well as become a positive force for change in their communities.

Our values

We are committed to

  • Introducing/evoking meaning and purpose
  • Igniting self-awareness and self-belief
  • Expanding relationship/connection to Community
  • Loving youth-led co-creation
  • Fostering the realisation of potential and inherent strengths
  • Providing a safe place to explore Self
  • Learning through playful curiosity and fun
