For the health of our democratic society, all children and young people need opportunities to learn what it takes to be active citizens.
Young Citizens believes that the best way to nurture democratic society is by equipping citizens with the knowledge, skills and confidence they need to be active, engaged and motivated in society.
We campaign on the importance of learning about citizenship. Every young person has a right to learn how to be an active citizen, in the same way that they have a right to other aspects of education.
Our goal is for a national consensus on the vital need for every young person to be able to learn and practice being active citizens. In this section, you will find information about our latest campaigning work and how you can get involved.
We also have a selection of key reference information regarding citizenship education and the campaigns to ensure all young people have the opportunities to learn about being active citizens.
