Young Devon

Our Vision
Young Devon exist to ‘Change the Odds in Favour of Young People’
We are a charitable organisation who aim to challenge the negative stereotypes about young people – campaigning alongside and for them
We work with all young people from targeted to universal but it is our primary objective to enhance the lives and promote opportunity for those who are least likely to have their voices heard and whose life circumstances impeded their ability to achieve their full potential
We have set ourselves three key challenges at the heart of the organisation to enable us to achieve our vision:

Challenge A - To promote and support a quality life experience, enabling young people to become resilient and succeed in their right to enjoy safe, healthy & happy lives.

Challenge B - To secure young people’s right to participate and be meaningfully involved in society and to influence decision makers who have the power to impact on their lives.

Challenge C - To invest in young people, building their life skills, confidence and motivation; and to create opportunities for them to make an active and valued contribution in their communities.
