Programmes

Young Citizens believes that active citizenship should be an essential part of children and young people’s education. Each year we work with thousands of schools to create practical, exciting experiences of ‘citizenship in action’. These range from teenagers taking part in ‘Mock Trials’ in real courts, in front of real judges, to primary school children learning how to campaign for causes that matter to them in our ‘Make a Difference Challenge’.

Explore our programmes below, or find out how you can work with us to support Young Citizen's programmes.
