Our vision is a society where people are empowered to shape their communities and institutions to enable a thriving democracy. To achieve this, we provide learning experiences that light the spark of active citizenship for children and young people.
Young Citizens has been providing inspiring citizenship education since 1989. We deliver a range of interactive programmes and provide resource libraries for pupils from primary school age to college age that build the knowledge, skills and confidence necessary to engage with complex issues and contribute to democratic life.
Our portfolio of work is delivered in state schools and colleges across the UK, as well as many of our resources available to youth groups and international schools to deliver citizenship education and civic learning for their communities.
