Build confidence. Develop new skills. Work together. That's exactly what you'll do as part of our Youth Co-operative Action project which lands in Manchester this July.

If you’re aged 14-19, want to learn digital skills, meet new people and work together to make a change where you live then we want to hear from you!

What you'll be doing

You’ll be part of a change and a drive to do something different, taking back control and making a real impact. During the project you will:

  • Build you confidence and work together with other young people in a supportive environment.
  • Learn new digital skills, with the opportunity to explore podcasting, filming and more!
  • Explore co-operative values, including why they matter and how you can apply them.
  • Visit other organisations in your local area that are doing amazing work and hear from inspirational speakers.
  • Fundraise and campaign on the issues that matter to you.

Not only that, there’ll be free travel to all sessions and food provided too! Travel costs and food sticker
