Action4Youth enables young people to challenge themselves and work with others
We are an established, energetic youth charity who provide positive, often transformational experiences and activities which inspire children and young people. Our aim is to enable young people of all abilities and disabilities to learn to challenge themselves and work with others – learning what they can achieve rather than what they can’t.
It’s about inspiring young people to become Inspiring Young People.
Action4Youth operates an outdoor adventure and learning centre: The Caldecotte Xperience.
We operate The Duke of Edinburgh’s Award and a number of other programmes such as, the National Citizen Service for the area and the Inspiration Programme. We also represent a membership of youth clubs and organisations throughout the county, giving guidance and support to help their growth and development.
The shared experience of the activities contribute to a range of outcomes for those who take part, delivering self confidence, personal development and esteem, teamwork, leadership, community engagement and ultimately work readiness.
