A brighter future for young people

Our youth workers help young people to achieve their potential at school, in their communities and at work. 

Active citizens

Case studies

Hear the stories of young people that we've supported.

We've seen the huge positive impact that young people can have on where they live. To ensure this potential doesn't go untapped, our teams work with local young people to give them an opportunity to be heard on issues that impact them and their community, as well as the tools to make a difference. These projects bridge generation gaps, create stronger communities, reduce reports of anti-social behaviour and take practical action on local and global environmental issues. 

Groundwork's Youth Network also provides a national platform for young people to campaign on social and environmental issues that will have an impact on their future.

Providing the tools to succeed

Our specialists also provide one-to-one coaching for young people at risk of underachieving to ensure they have the support they need to get back on track.

We also provide skills and training to people who have left education with few or no qualifications to help them find a career that suits them. For example our Green Teams give people real world experience, training and qualifications for a career in grounds maintenance at the same time as improving the local environment.
