Teaching Resources

Teaching resources that inspire and shape young people

Young Citizens wants all young people to leave education understanding how society works – from politics to the law, the economy, the environment and human rights – in the UK and globally. We also want them to have the skills to navigate our complex society – able to think critically, listen to other viewpoints, and work together to create positive change. That is why we provide high-quality, specialised teaching and learning resources.

Explore our primary resources (Go-Givers) – a library of over 100 lessons, assemblies, and tools that develop pupils’ spiritual, moral, social, and cultural (SMSC) learning, including their understanding of fundamental British values.

We also have a suite of secondary resources ranging from politics lessons to climate action to the Mock G7!
