Be a part of our mission for change

Young Citizens ambitious 10-year strategy aims to quadruple the number of intermediaries we work with, so that by 2027 we will support 10,000 professionals volunteering in educational settings across the UK. We believe that young people need to learn about topics such as the law, media, economics and more, to become the active citizens of tomorrow, and that professionals are the people best placed to facilitate this learning.

We work with our corporate partners in a variety of ways, from running our off-the-shelf volunteering programme, Experts in Schools, to creating Bespoke Projects designed to meet our partners’ business objectives. However, all of our corporate volunteering programmes share a common aim; to utilise the unique skillset and knowledge of our professional volunteers to educate young people, raise aspirations and improve vital employability skills.

We also have several Sponsorship opportunities where your business and employees could choose to support us financially.

Whatever the size or sector of your organisation we urge you to get in touch with Therri Tait to find out how you can support. Help us to reach more young people across the UK.

"As much as it is a learning experience for them, the young people make you think about quite common issues from a completely different perspective. I highly enjoyed it and will definitely do it again." Associate, Milbank Tweed Hadley & McCloy
