Young Advisors are young people aged between 15 and 21, who stimulate social action by showing community leaders and decision makers how to engage young people in community life, local decision making and improving services.
Working through a social enterprise model, we deliver public service reform helping direct limited resources to where it is needed most.

Youth services across the UK are continuing to be disproportionately cut as a result of the austerity measures. By 2015, youth service provision may have disappeared entirely in many parts of the country and could certainly be the first public service to disappear. If you think services for young people are important, than don't forget to join the Choose Youth Campaign!

Last week our lead, Rohim Mohammed went to Brussels to speak at a conference hosted by Microsoft on technology and youth employment. There are currently over 14 million unemployed young people in 21 EU member states. In the fight to keep Europe competitive, there is a real drive to utilise the skills of the unemployed 'digital native' generation.
See more of the panel discussion that Rohim took part in. Rohim is also a member of our board of trustees.
