Our Lowestoft based Youth Co-operative Action programme is delivered in partnership with YMCA Trinity Group, and promises to equip cohorts of young people with the skills needed to become true change makers.

What is YCA?

This isn’t just a programme where young people ‘learn some new stuff’ - this is about empowerment. Their experience, views and perspectives make them the experts and this journey is about creating a platform for them to make a real impact. During the programme participants:

  • Realise their leadership potential
  • Develop entrepreneurial skills and start projects and enterprises that will benefit their community, with the opportunity to use digital skills and channels like podcasting, filming and more!
  • Explore co-operative values, including why they matter and how they can apply them to their life, career and community.
  • Create, campaign, collaborate and connect with a range of people and professionals who can help them to tackle the issues that matter to them.
