Support us Young Citizens 30th Birthday Appeal Donate Fundraise This year, to celebrate our 30th birthday, we have set ourselves the ambitious target of working with our supporters to raise £30,000 from donations. This will enable us to work with an additional 1,000 children and young people across the UK over the next year. Young people need help and support to understand the society they're growing up in - and to develop the skills and confidence so they can play their part in shaping it. We offer that help, preparing young people for democratic life. Your donation will make a big difference. We are asking for your donation at a time when our work is needed more than ever. Democracy is facing its biggest challenges in a generation, fake news is undermining trust in many of society’s institutions, and alienation is growing. Young Citizens is rising to these challenges by helping young people navigate their way in the world and become active citizens – committed and confident about working to improve their communities. To expand our work to meet these challenges in our 30th year, we need your help. Need a little extra inspiration? Suggested next steps: See other ways you can volunteer with us.
