Young Citizens

General Details

Young Citizens is an education charity working in primary and secondary schools to help educate, inspire and motivate the active citizens of tomorrow.

Each year we work with thousands of volunteers from many different walks of life to give young people practical, exciting experiences of citizenship in action. These range from teenagers taking part in ‘Mock Trials’ in real courts, in front of real judges, to primary school children learning how to campaign for causes that matter to them in our ‘Make a Difference Challenge’.

Society reflects what we put into our education system
We believe that all elements of active citizenship should be essential parts of young people’s education. Without citizenship education, they will miss out on opportunities and vital life skills, and our democratic society will fail to benefit.

We’ve challenged ourselves over the coming decade to help more young people than ever gain the knowledge, skills and confidence they need to become active citizens and make a positive contribution to their communities.
