With a history spanning over a century, UK Youth is a leading national charity committed to ensuring, all young people are empowered to build bright futures regardless of their background or circumstances.
We sit at the heart of a national network of youth organisations, committed to providing support, advice and training to equip young people with the vital life skills needed to engage in education, volunteering and employment.
Our mission is to provide access to appropriate, high quality services for young people in every community so that all young people are empowered to build bright futures, regardless of their background or circumstances. Our work engages young people most in need of support with 86% of the young people on our programmes facing at least one barrier to progress and over half living in some of the most deprived areas of the UK. Thanks to high quality youth work delivered by a trusted adult in a local safe space, 64% of our young people report improved key life skills after engaging with our skills development programmes.
Underpinning everything we do are three core values:
We work with young people on their terms
We are committed to working in partnership
We advocate on behalf of young people and the sector
Our 2020 Vision

To achieve our 2020 aim, we are working to ensure:
Young people access support in their community or online
Young people develop life skills
Young people engage with training volunteering or employment
