Oxfordshire Youth

With a history spanning over 70 years, Oxfordshire Youth is the leading youth organisation for the youth sector in Oxfordshire.

Young people need access to safe spaces and trusting relationships, where they can be themselves, make friends, develop new skills and make positive changes to their lives and their communities.

Throughout history, youth organisations have provided vital opportunities for young people to express themselves freely, build confidence, strengthen their talents, develop new skills and raise aspirations.

Our vision is for all young people to be empowered, feel respected and know that they are valued. We achieve this with, and through our local network of youth sector organisations, brought together through our merger with Oxfordshire Children’s Voluntary Youth Service (OCVYS), together reaching over 26,000 young people.

We believe that informal education, youth work & non-formal learning is essential to improving young people’s quality of life.

Young people are at the heart of what we do. Our Youth Committee VOICE, a network of young people from our member organisations, informs and guides our work.

We are committed to helping Young people fulfil their potential and provide a youth leadership programme.
