Join Young Citizens!

Young Citizens is Coram's ambassador programme for 16-25 year olds from migrant and refugee backgrounds. 

Young Citizens

The Young Citizens' Training Programme launches this summer and is looking for new members!

Get involved! 

Are you aged 16-25 and from a migrant or refugee background? Want to use your experiences to inspire and empower other young people? Join us!

You will:

  • Get training to develop your skills in public speaking, workshop facilitation and more
  • Create workshops for young people from similar backgrounds
  • Get paid to co-deliver workshops in colleges
  • Have fun and make friends!

How does it work?

You will work with professionals at Coram to create workshops on the rights and wellbeing of young people starting life in the UK and will get training to develop your skills and knowledge.

Sessions will be held every week over July and August. They will be on Saturday afternoons for the first three weeks of July and then every Wednesday afternoon from 24th July - 28th August.

You will then get the opportunity to become a Young Citizens Trainer and be paid London Living Wage (£10.55) to co-deliver workshops to ESOL students in colleges. 

From September there will be monthly Saturday meet-ups to get together with the Young Citizens community.

We're looking for people who are:

  • Age 16-25 years old
  • From a migrant or refugee background
  • From North West London (especially Brent, Harrow or Barnet)
  • Have the right to work in the UK
