Young people can make a huge contribution to society, but often don’t have the platform to address the challenges most important to them. Team London Young Ambassadors uses social action to enable young people to unlock their potential and make change in their community.
Since 2013, thousands of young people across London have improved their school and communities by setting up projects on issues they really care about, such as LGBTQ+, food poverty, bullying and refugees. They’re taking action on key areas, including air quality and the environment, gangs and knife crime, gender equality, homelessness, mental health and wellbeing, and social integration.
Based on the principles of #iwill’s The Power of Youth Charter, the programme enables young people to address the issues that matter most to them through social action.
By becoming a Team London Young Ambassador young people will build brighter futures for themselves, their peers and communities across London.
We’re proud to be partnering with the Mayor of London and Smart School Councils, working with teachers in Alternative Provision, Special Educational Need and Disability schools and Pupil Referral Units. Together we are enabling and inspiring some of the most resilient young people in London, giving them a platform to make real change.
Team London Young Ambassadors launched in January 2021, and we’re still taking registrations. If you’re a teacher and believe your students can unlock their potential to make a positive difference, register your interest below.
