1925: Ambition begins life as the National Association of Boys’ Clubs (NABC)
Young people are under so much pressure today. Record numbers are out of work. School, relationships and peer pressure cause a lot of stress.
Youth clubs support young people to develop confidence, skills and resilience for the future.
And we support youth clubs, and community groups and projects to do this vital work.
As well as making sure that young people have a local youth club or community youth project, we want to make them the best they can be. We want youth clubs to have the tools, support and information they need. Read more here.
Our members work with over 3,500 youth clubs and youth community projects across the UK, supporting more than 350,000 young people. Our members are at the heart of what we do. We develop the services they need and use our influence to open up exciting opportunities for them.
