Young Citizens Programme Evaluation: interim report July 2021

This interim report analyses feedback from young people and professionals involved in Coram’s Young Citizens Training Programme from July 2019 to March 2021.

The Young Citizens Training Programme aims to make a positive impact on the lives of 16-25 year olds from migrant and refugee backgrounds, enhancing their resilience to overcome the challenges they face and supporting them to make positive lives for themselves in this country.

Young Citizens participants attend peer-led workshops co-produced and delivered by Young Citizens Trainers, who use their experience of overcoming challenges when moving to the UK to help their peers.

This interim report analyses the level to which the programme has achieved outcomes set out in its Theory of Change between July 2019 and March 2021, midway through the three-year funded programme. In this period 41 Young Citizens Trainers co-designed and delivered workshops to 308 Young Citizens participants.

A full evaluation report of the programme will be published in October 2022. Find out more about Coram’s Young Citizens Programme on our website here
