UK Youth supports young people to learn and succeed outside of the classroom. For over 100 years we have been enabling young people from all backgrounds to realise their potential. Today, through a national network of youth associations, we offer 790,000 7-25 year-olds access to a wide range of vital learning programmes. Our work is all about supporting young people to gain life skills and accredited awards that build confidence, resilience and make them more employable. Our approach works with all young people but has proven particularly effective for those not thriving in mainstream education.
Here are some words from Katy, who rode with us in 2013
"I was familiar with the work of UK Youth for several months prior to getting involved in L2P, but I had no idea about the involvement of UK Youth at such events. Doing L2P really just embodies the work of UK Youth, I got inspired, grew my own confidence in a serious personal challenge, while supporting a charity that does this for millions of youngsters! So yes there was rain, wind and I was a little tired the week after, but this is a distant memory compared to the 3 days riding with equally motivated and inspiring individuals, all with their own reasons to get involved, and what could be better than riding into Paris with the Arc de Triomphe and Eiffel Tower in front of you!!!"
Our President Nigel Mansell CBE was part of the UK Youth riding team in 2013.
