We believe that every young person has the right to discover what they're capable of!
Young Bristol is a youth-driven charity that works to offer a choice of opportunities and experiences for all young people.
Founded in 1928, Young Bristol has evolved into one of Bristol’s leading youth charities, providing critical out-of-school services for young people of 8 – 25 years in communities across the city.Why the community needs us
Our mission is to be an outstanding provider of high quality community-based youth services and innovative programmes that positively and sustainably impact the lives of young people. We do this through our community youth club network based in some of Bristol’s most challenging communities, mobile youth services, outdoor activities, creative arts, outdoor employment, and informal educational programmes.Our impact
Young Bristol continues to work in some of the most deprived communities
in England. At Young Bristol we believe that one size does not fit all, which is
why we deliver a wide-range of programmes and opportunities across Bristol,
targeting children and young people through early intervention; and preventing
young people becoming involved in crime and anti-social behaviour.
Some of our key highlights for 2022-23 include:
- 20,562 contacts during 2022-23
- 802 new participants supported by our programmes
- 1,489 sessions delivered in and around Bristol
- 50 qualifications awarded to young people ages 16 – 25 on our Outdoor Employment Programme
- 16 communities supported across Bristol and the surrounding areas
We have many volunteer roles for you to choose from across our organisation, whether it’s helping at fundraising events, volunteering your time as a company, or supporting our Community Youth Clubs.
Your time and support will make a difference.
