Action4Youth Vision, Mission & Values
Exceptional experiences that make a lifetime of difference.
To support all young people’s growth towards fulfilling and responsible adult lives, A4Y develops physical, mental, spiritual, moral and cultural abilities which act as:
- A Springboard towards realising dreams
- A Safety Net for those at risk
- A Voice of influence- from the young and for the young
In order to benefit as many young people as possible while maintaining A4Y’s financial stability, we partner with those (government, schools, youth clubs, businesses, trusts and foundations and others) who share our mission.
Be exceptional – Use imagination, determination and resilience to achieve exceptional outcomes everyday
Care – Always seek to understand and look after each other
Trail blaze – Be adventurous in exploring how we could serve more and better
Make responsible choices – Use resources wisely so that we can sustain our investment in young people
Do what is right – Hold ourselves and others to the highest standard of behaviour

The news of the death of HRH The Duke of Edinburgh has inspired many memories and reminiscences from those who have taken part in the Duke of Edinburgh Award down the years and one of the most notable features is the longevity of the programme and its global reach.
Action4Youth delivered two fun days of activity sessions for 90 children from High Wycombe aged 4- 11 years as part of the Holiday Activities and Food Programme from Buckinghamshire Council. The programme was set at YouthSpace, in Green Street and the activities were for children who are eligible for free school meals.
Schools have gone back and we are now inching our way forward, with fingers crossed, to the easing of further restrictions. We know of the problems for young people which have been the consequence of the pandemic; the anxiety, fear, disruption to normal life, concern about exams, jobs and the future, withdrawal, loneliness, isolation and sadly, for many, bereavement.
There are signs of spring and hope in the blooming of snowdrops and daffodils and in the rapidly growing number of those vaccinated. After a difficult stop-start year it will likely be some months before we really can feel that the world is opening up again but here at Action4Youth we are looking ahead with energy and optimism.
Action4Youth has been delivering the National Citizen Service programme to 15-17 year olds in Bucks since its inception.
The good news is that from this summer we will be delivering the programme in Milton Keynes and Slough as well as Bucks.
We need the whole community to embrace initiatives for a better future which means individuals and companies offering to volunteer, support or partner with us. Together, we can make a difference.
