Team London Young Ambassadors delivers a Youth Social Action programme to Alternative Provision, Pupil Referral Units and Special Educational Need and Disability schools. The programme will deliver in school sessions that encourage and support young people aged 10 – 18 to explore issues that are meaningful and relevant to them, inform system change and address inequalities through the power of their voice.
