  • Mission statement

    Our Vision is for every young person to become a positive force for change in their own life, and the lives of others, whatever their background or circumstance.

    In this way, they will make a successful transition from childhood to adulthood with the capabilities they need to become happy, healthy, valued members of the community, fully equipped to access employment and achieve their aspirations.



    Our Mission is to give young people the tools they need for life, work and a better future.

    We achieve our mission by giving young people a voice so they can influence the world around them, creating innovative and inspiring national programmes, and supporting the youth development organisations in our membership. We believe in co-creating programmes with young people and delivering them in partnership with both community-based and targeted youth organisations.
