Groundwork Youth

Groundwork Youth is a platform supporting 16 – 24 year olds to take action in their local environment. We do this by providing you with opportunities and experiences that develop your leadership potential and connect you with like-minded people who also want to make a difference in their communities. Our youth programme offers young people the chance to drive forward national campaigns about issues that matter to them by becoming part of our thriving network of Young Green Ambassadors and Youth Advisory Board Members.
