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 professionals are the people best-placed to facilitate this learning.
Our corporate volunteering programmes utilise professionals' unique expertise to help young people build vital employability skills for the future.
We work with our corporate partners in a variety of ways:
- Our long-established staff volunteering programme, Experts in Schools
- Bespoke Projects aligning with corporate citizenship goals
- Sponsorship or Charity of the Year opportunities creating staff engagement and fundraising
Find out more below about how these programmes could be a fit for your team or business in creating a high-impact education and youth engagement strategy.
"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, Legal Experts in Schools employer
“I had a really good time and I learnt a lot. It was amazing to work with professionals and to hear their insights and learn from them.”
