Young Leaders (VOLUNTEER)

Help us create ‘URBAN YOUTH’ by getting involved during our early stages of the start-up phase where you will be making a difference building a unique young people’s charity that transforms the lives of young Londoners.

  • Are you 16-26 years old? Live in London?
  • Can you spare a few hours per month to volunteer for a new start up young peoples’ charity that aims to transform the lives of young Londoners?
  • Can you help us create an amazing and unique young peoples charity for young Londoners?

 About Urban Youth

We are a start-up young people’s charity that are passionate about helping disadvantaged young Londoners to transform their lives and to succeed in life. Our aim is to accompany young people through adolescence, while helping them to reach their full potential, grow up healthy, be part of society and be prepared for their future. We want young people to achieve their dreams but if they don't, we want them to be able to reflect positively on what's happened and learn from it.

We will do this by providing a range of fun, interactive and structured programmes, training workshops and events, where young people will have access to positive motivational and inspirational role models to help them develop their self-confidence and belief in themselves and help divert young people who feel their only choice is to enter into the wrong types of crowds, especially when they take a wrong turn or feel they have nowhere else to turn. We will guide and support young people and show them that there is a different path.

Our aim is to initially provide programmes in the following key 4 areas and then later add in new programmes based on the needs and aspirations of young people accessing our services, as well as those across London.

The 4 key areas include:

  1. Youth Leadership Programme
  2. Youth Employability Skills Programme
  3. Youth Life Skills Programme
  4. Youth Mental Health Skills Programme

Can you help? – The VOLUNTEER Role

Young people have already been involved and helped us from choosing our name, to designing our logo and publicity, made decisions about our programmes and where they feel we should be heading and now we are looking for some new young people to join Urban Youth as Young Leaders to help us reach our next goal and ensure young people are at the front and centre of what we do.
