Our goal is to create meaningful and lasting partnerships with companies that have a desire to enhance the lives of young people. 

Partnering with YUAF means that you will have a positive impact on the life and mental well-being of a young person.  

As a grass-roots charity, we are focused on reaching young people where they live, on estates, on the streets and in schools to deliver creative workshops and well-being programs.  

We offer many opportunities to partner with us in helping them gain confidence, build resilience and develop a greater sense 

of self. 

We can achieve so much more by joining forces. That’s why we are looking for organisations to help us achieve our goal to buy a new eco-friendly Outreach Bus that will serve underprivileged communities for years to come.

Let’s transform a young person’s life together.

Bring YUAF into your organization...

...and enhance your team’s communication, leadership skills and empathy through co-curated experiential learning and team building activities such as beatboxing, lyric writing, DJ-ing and music production.


Make YUAF your Charity of Choice and support us all year round.

As a YUAF partner, your generosity will enable us build programmes and workshops for young people that will continue to strengthen their resilience and improve their well-being.

Partnering with YUAF means that we will collaborate with you and your employees to ensure our partnership promotes a sense of pride, ownership and connection within your organization.


There are several opportunities for your employees to engage with YUAF.  Organize and promote an employee-led activity to benefit our workshops which will directly impact the lives of young people. 


Participate in our Pathways Program to provide mentoring or internships to one of our young people.

We know that corporate partnerships have a transformative impact on the communities we work with across Greater London.  Professional guidance for a young person can be life changing, not only for them, but for your employees as well.

Fundraising is the biggest challenge for all charities and because we teach young people how to be resilient, we believe we must practice what we teach. We are committed to diversifying our income streams to adjust to the ever-changing voluntary sector landscape to ensure we never let our young people down. 


Our team works to secure funds through grants, housing associations, trusts and foundations whose tenants for giving align with the programs YUAF offers to young people.




We work with generous and dedicated partners and brands to co-create fundraising events that generate funds and to create a space to celebrate
our young talent.

After visiting the incredible Outreach Mobile Bus and learning more about the wonderful work that YUAF do across London, and locally in Hackney to engage young people in music, it made perfect sense to support them as part of our 'RaveLove' event series which was set up in 2019 to support local charities in LA, Berlin and London.  The London edition in support of YUAF took place at Tottenham Club Five Miles and hosted techno heavyweight Daniel Avery b2b with Finnish producer IDA raising £3009.  100% of the proceeds raised were donated to YUAF."
