Young Devon is a progressive charity that exists to change the odds in favour of young people. Challenging negative stereotypes and campaigning shoulder to shoulder with young people.
Young Devon's primary objective is to enhance lives and promote opportunity for those least likely to have their voices heard.
Our team of staff put young people at the centre of everything they do; delivering sessions with young people, putting roofs over the heads of young vulnerable people every night, giving advice and support to young people through our network of YES centres across Devon, delivering counselling to young people, supporting our membership of voluntary youth groups, as well as promoting opportunities for young people and adults to become active volunteers.
Three key challenges sit at the heart of Young Devon to which all our work relates:
- To promote and support a quality of life experience, enabling young people to become resilient and succeed in their right to enjoy safe, healthy and happy lives.
- To secure young people's rights to participate and be meaningfully involved in society and to influence decision makers who have the power to impact on their lives.
- To invest in young people, assisting them in building their life skills, confidence and motivation; and to create opportunities for them to make an active and valued contribution to their communities.
Young people can access Young Devon's services across the county, through outreach workers in rurally isolated communities, online at www.youngdevon.org and on Facebook or Twitter.
