ABOUT US

Young Urban Art Foundation's mission to empower the lives

of young people by strengthening well-being and building opportunities, through creativity and culture, ensuring that

they are seen, heard and celebrated.

Within 13 years, we have helped over 21,000 young people and are known for delivering both empowering and creative outreach workshops in hard-to-reach areas where young people are at high-risk of child exploitation, being a victim of crime or those who do not have access to opportunities.

 

Our youth charity's programmes are designed around prevention and built to drive creativity, such as our multimedia bus workshops, which we take into communities, as a safe and exciting space to inspire and build their confidence. We also take our facilitators to schools, community centres and youth hubs. Working with partners, we provide young people with opportunities to gain further training or work experience, allowing them to build a long-term rapport and support system.

We are supported by a variety of partners including Sony Music Entertainment UK, PRS & Ditto Mgmt who have helped us deliver music programs across London.  We have also achieved London Youth Gold Quality Mark certified by City & Guilds.
