We are looking for volunteers to support the York Youth Council which meets every Wednesday evening during term time in the city centre.

The York Youth Council are a group of young people aged between 11 and 18 who come from all over the city to voice the views of young people.

The Youth Council works to make a positive difference that benefits all of York’s youth – examples of campaigns are 'Stop Bullying' and 'Minding Minds School Award' (for positive mental health).

Benefits to the volunteer

  • an opportunity to make a difference in the city
  • a chance to develop your own skills
  • gain experience of working with young people and young adults
  • enhanced job opportunities
