Bring About Change

A youth-led social action programme for secondary and post-16 learners.

Building on the success of our popular Make a Difference Challenge for primary aged children, Young Citizens has developed Bring About Change: a community action programme for young people aged 11+.

The programme equips young people with the skills, knowledge and confidence to investigate and solve issues in their community through creating meaningful social action projects.
