Promoting Action


The Oxfam Youth Ambassadors Programme

The Oxfam Youth Ambassadors programme aims to empower pupils to learn and take action for themselves. Along with the knowledge and values that they have gained from learning about global issues, the programme helps to equip pupils with the necessary skills and confidence to be pro-active in making a positive difference in the world.

We promote a Learn-Think-Act approach to global citizenship. This ensures pupils have time to learn more and think critically about their agency, before taking informed and responsible action.
