Youth at Risk

We transform the lives of society’s most alienated and disadvantaged young people with our 'Tough Love' personal development workshops and ongoing coaching and other support from volunteers.

Founded 1992

  • Mission statement

    Youth at Risk is a ground-breaking charity whose aim is to enable disaffected and alienated young people on the margins of society to transform their lives and build a worthwhile future.

    See us in action at http://www. Youtube. Com/user/YouthatRiskUK? Feature=mhee.

    Typically these young people will have disengaged with or been excluded from education and learning, and be unemployed. They may be involved in anti-social behaviour, gang culture and the misuse of drugs and alcohol. Many will be involved,at some point, in the youth justice system and some will be at risk of engaging with the growing movement of extremism within communities and racially motivated violence.

    Working in partnership with public, private and voluntary sector organisations we design and deliver into communities, innovative personal development programmes that have a proven track record in enabling some of society's most alienated and disaffected young people to transform the way they view and live their lives. We work holistically to encourage and coach them to reinvent themselves, recognise and fulfil their potential, and choose to live, work and play responsibly within the structure of society.
