The British Youth Council are searching for the next young leaders of social and political change in the UK. The youth-led charity is looking for people aged 16-25 who are motivated by a belief in the work of the British Youth Council to achieve our vision of the world where all young people are respected

“The British Youth Council radically changed my career and life path. I had no idea what I wanted to do. But by volunteering with the charity, and seeing how it shapes young people's lives I now know I want to have my own career doing something similar”.
