Voice, action, and agency │ Impact

Young people are not just the leaders of tomorrow. They have the energy, skills, and ideas to change the world around us. We believe that by listening to young people’s views and given them the right skills and support, they can make a difference, find their voice, and feel a greater control and agency over the lives.

Grant programme examples: Student councils, student surveys and consultation, social action, young people on boards, alumni programme etc.
