3. Volunteer as a Youth Ambassador

Aged 16-24? Volunteer as a Youth Ambassador with Youth Employment UK, wherever you live in the UK. Our Ambassadors get a taste from some amazing opportunities, from sharing their views with politicians in the Houses of Parliament to working as teams to do workshops and help other young people in the UK build their confidence. To keep things safe in times of Coronavirus our activities are currently all online, and you’ll be part of a really friendly and supportive – and ACTIVE – network of other young people changing the future of youth in the UK for the better.
