Information about Youth Bank


Empowerment, community cohesion, participation... forget the buzzwords – young people want action. YouthBank is all about action. Action carried out by, and for, young people.

Through Youthbank, young people can explore opportunities not normally open to them; handling decisions about money, having the power to make change and working alongside adults. It’s about young people putting their ideas into action and practicing their right to make decisions to benefit their community.

Youthbank is more than just a volunteering opportunity. It is real. It is exciting. It is what you make it!
