Young Citizens Trainers co-design and run workshops for other young people who are new to the country. They share their experiences to help others make positive lives for themselves in London.

Workshops aim to increase young people's wellbeing and knowledge of their rights. Topics are:

  • The Asylum Process for Young People
  • Your Rights as a Care Leaver
  • Skills for Wellbeing
  • Building your Support Network

If you're interested in hosting a workshop at your college, local authority or youth group in Barnet, Brent, Harrow, Lewisham, Lambeth or Southwark please contact

“Young people leading is something very powerful - they are the special thing, they are the power. Their story is so inspiring. It’s so great to hear their stories and see their confidence to deliver the session and hear where they’ve got to”. Youth Worker from Barnet

Thank you to Young Londoner's Fund and John Lyon’s Charity for making this programme possible.
