We are delighted to be mobilising thousands more young people in democratic engagement over the next year.

Funded by the Cabinet Office as part of the Government's Suffrage Centenary Fund until March 2019, the Young Citizens Democracy Ambassadors programme provides youth leaders with a package of support and funding to enable them to train and empower young people aged 13 to 16 to take on the role of democracy peer educators.

Reaching their peers through diverse means - ranging from structured workshops to online conversations - Democracy Ambassadors will share their skills and knowledge on the importance of democracy and how it operates in the UK.

Working alongside Youth United and UK Youth Voice we have ambitious plans to support 1,500 Democracy Ambassadors to reach out to 100,000 young people over the coming financial year.

If you are a youth leader and would like to know more about how you can get involved in the programme please register your interest with Yvonne Richards, Director of Programmes and Learning.
