Have fun, gain skills and make a difference!
"Being involved with something that makes a big difference and doing it alongside such great people has been incredible - the skills I have learnt won't be forgotten." Shane, 17
For a brighter tomorrow, young people must speak up against poverty, and for a fairer and more just society. That's why Oxfam is supporting a growing network of Youth Ambassadors.
Youth Ambassadors meet in their own time (with the support of a teacher) to learn together about global issues, whilst developing the skills and the confidence to make their voices heard.
Oxfam's Youth Action Launch Pad suggests activities for Youth Ambassadors such as organising a film evening and discussion, Peer teaching in assemblies and in lessons, meeting MPs and other decision makers, and raising awareness though film making.
Activities support a chosen campaign theme such as improved water and sanitation, education for all, or human rights for people during emergencies. Visit our gallery of ideas for examples of projects run by existing groups.
