YouthBank UK

Why Join the YouthBank UK Network?

Young people have identified a huge range of benefits from being part of the YouthBank network including:

• Increased confidence
• Improved communication
• A range of new skills including negotiating, teamworking and decision-making
• A greater understanding of being part of a community
• Young people exceeding expectations (achieving better than expected grades or gaining employment at a higher level than their peers) due to their volunteering experiences
• Higher awareness of diversity issues, particularly through involvement at YouthBank UK residentials - this was also seen as a key way young people have broadened their horizons by being able to travel throughout the UK.

YouthBank UK provides a range membership benefits when you join the network from help to get started, places at residentials and training courses to information briefings, our toolkits, a bespoke management information system, access to your own website, promotional materials, newsletters and opportunities for networking across the UK and to influence policy plus much more! All new YouthBanks are also entitled to a one day accredited training course to help you set up and run your YouthBank.
