Young Citizens

Young Citizens is a voluntary programme for young people from migrant and refugee backgrounds aged 16 to 25, run by Coram with funding from The Queen's Trust.

Young Citizens is a network of young people who are passionate about using their experiences of making a life in this country. Together they work with and represent the views of children and young people who want to do the same.
