#PowerOfYouth 2020

Young people have unbelievable potential and, when given the opportunities and support they need and deserve, they can achieve anything they put their mind towards. We’ve seen it first-hand for over 28 years and the #PowerOfYouth never ceases to amaze.

Over the past 5 years we've been on a mission to empower young people from the North East of England to explore social action on their own terms.
