We Believe in Young People

Our vision is focused on young people. We believe all young people should have the confidence and skills they need to live, learn, work and achieve.

Young people are our future. Society needs their spark and energy to make it tick. They have the power to make the world a better place for us all. Our mission is to unlock young people’s potential by providing high quality support and opportunities.

NYA has been transforming lives through youth work for 50 years. We are the national body for youth work.

Skilled youth workers build relationships that support young people to explore their personal, social and educational development.

Youth work enables young people to develop their voice, influence and place within society.
