Are you an expert in working with young people and passionate about increasing their aspirations and opportunities?

To get involved as a group leader you will need to:

  • Work with young people aged 13–16 in England.
  • Report back to Young Citizens on the progress of your Democracy Ambassadors.
  • Be able to deliver the training and support your Democracy Ambassadors from September 2018, and complete activities before March 2019.

How will it work?

  • You’ll receive Democracy Ambassador training resources that include a ‘start-up session’ and ideas for supporting your Democracy Ambassadors to deliver peer-to-peer activity (such as running a session for the rest of the group, posting a vlog on social media or creating and sharing a short videos or quizzes with peers online).
  • Using these training resources, you’ll deliver an initial 2 hour session to your Democracy Ambassadors.
  • You’ll continue to work with your Democracy Ambassadors to help them reach their 50 and then 100 peer-to-peer interactions.
  • You’ll report back to Young Citizens on your activity.

What support will Young Citizens offer?

  • We’ll provide training resources and will contribute towards your project costs*.
  • We’ll be available to talk through ideas and any issues in supporting young people to complete the programme.
  • We’ll send regular communications, updates and new resources.
  • We’ll also offer incentives for the young people to recognise their achievements.

Before you sign up you’ll be sent full details of all of the above in the ‘Working Agreement’ so that you are comfortable with what you are signing up to.
