Join us today! The British Youth Council supports young people
to have a voice, take action and make a difference. We are a
unique, youth-led organisation with a large, diverse membership
delivering the UK's leading youth voice programmes, including the
UK Youth Parliament and the Youth Select Committee.
We are led by young people
The Board of the Britsish Youth Council are all under 26 years
old. Our members are all youth-led or youth serving organisations
and they elect the Board, develop our policy and set the agenda for
our campaigns and programmes.
We support youth-led social action
Nationally and in communities across the UK young people are
identifying needs, taking action and making a difference.
Young people set the agenda for action. Nationally, the Make
Your Mark ballot and the House of Commons debate establish the UK
Youth Parliament priority campaign, and the British Youth Council
members propose and vote on the organisation's annual campaigns.
Locally, youth councils, elected representatives and organisations
determine the needs of their communities. The British Youth Council
provides resources and regional support and coordination to young
people's social action.
