Aimed in particular at young people involved in setting up and running a YouthBank, but wider applications of leadership and decision-making skills are also supported.
A YouthBank is a youth-led group that sets up and distributes a grant fund to other young people to improve their local communities. Each YouthBank is set up to suit its community’s needs so while they are all based on the same values they look different.
