Leeds Community Ambassadors


On the streets in Leeds.

 

Having been invited in 2014 by our colleagues at Clarion Housing to work with young people on their Sutton Park Estate, we have added to our detached youth work presence in the area and now deliver several detached youth work sessions each week.

In Leeds, The Youth Association is working on a long-term aim to establish a growing culture of participation, influence and volunteerism among young people. Particularly in neighbourhoods like Killingbeck, Halton and Sutton Park, youth workers having been developing young people into Community Ambassadors, who plan and execute social action projects for the benefit of their own communities.
