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.
