Young people's projects
Coram believes that young people can change their own lives and the world around them by making a difference as young ambassadors, peer educators and volunteers.
Our youth projects place young people at the heart of our organisation, co-producing and delivering solutions to the issues they face. With ongoing training and support, they are given the skills and confidence to get their voices heard and effect change.
“There is a sense of urgency to educate people on the rights of youths, to reach out a helping hand to young people, and ensure that they are not alone. They have people like you and I looking out for them, people like us who care about their future and their stories.” - Ray, Youth Rights Trainer
Coram’s programmes for young people include:
- Young Parenthood, a project raising awareness of what it's like to become a parent at a young age
- The Adoptables, a peer network of adopted young people
- Young Citizens and the Youth Rights Trainers, programmes for young migrants and refugees
- Speak Out!, a project with the National Theatre for young people.
- Coram Voice, which includes A National Voice, an organisation working to amplify the voices of care experienced children and young people.
