Why we need your help
With the cost-of-living rises, a growing mental health crisis, barriers to housing and the ongoing effects of the pandemic on education, young people have felt some of the worse effects of the last few years. But they have the least amount of power, and limited opportunities to be heard and involved in providing answers to fixing these problems.
Our charity’s aim is to ensure that young people from all backgrounds have the skills and the opportunity to make social and political change.
But we can't do this alone.
We need amazing people like you to join forces with us. To help us empower more young people to change their lives – and the lives of others –for the better.
Whether you're an alumni of BYC, a youth voice advocate, or a young person yourself who's passionate about being heard alongside others like you, join this community today.
The most impactful way you can do this is to give a monthly gift we can depend on. To give us regular support and allow us to plan for the long term.
The difference you’ll make
By joining the BYC Empower group you’ll be helping us to create more life-changing experiences like this:
"It was the experience of a lifetime. Many people believe that growth and fun are two separate aspects of life, yet BYC intertwined the two, creating an amazing environment for me to thrive, have my voice heard, change my community for the better, and make some of my greatest friends."
