How to join and renew your membership
We would love to have you as an Ambition member
Just for starters:
At the most basic level, youth clubs give young people something positive and fun to do, stopping them getting into trouble. But they achieve so much more than this.
Clubs can change young people’s lives. They give teenagers vital skills like teamwork and leadership. They give young people a sense of belonging and a place in their community. Getting good at a particular skill builds their confidence. Sports clubs improve young people’s health and fitness. The leaders running clubs are often trained to give advice on everything from drugs to relationships.
Youth clubs help make young people happy, healthy, well adjusted – and able to make positive contribution to society and their communities.
In 2004, we surveyed 200 young people about youth clubs, working with Brunel University.
The results speak for themselves:
£3m given to our members for local work with young people
30k adults help to run amazing youth clubs and projects
500 young women and girls involved in our dance programme
