We Are Listening to Young People

We are a youth-led foundation, we support young people in their personal development and empower them to get involved in their communities making a difference as decision-makers and leaders.

Our programmes are grounded in youth-led feedback sessions which empower young people to take ownership. During these sessions, young people develop skills, knowledge and confidence to that can meaningfully shape their futures.
