What you can do
Stonewall London Pride 2015 Young Campaigners

Young campaigners programme

The Young Campaigners Programme is a free five-month programme open to all UK-based 16 to 21-year-olds, kindly supported by Lloyds Banking Group.

The programme provides young people with the training and support needed for them to start campaigning in schools, colleges, universities and communities to tackle the discrimination and bullying of LGBT people.

Previous Young Campaigners have created videos, posters and blogs, and delivered teacher training and workshops to other students.

What we're looking for

We are looking for passionate, motivated and creative young people from all backgrounds to work with us to help create a world where everyone is accepted without exception.

What Young Campaigners do

Young Campaigners work closely with Britain's leading equality campaigners, whilst making new friends and joining a network with other young campaigners.

  • The programme begins with a packed residential training event 
  • Young campaigners then spend the next five months researching, designing and delivering their campaigns
  • At the end of the five months, we reunite to celebrate the campaigners' achievements at the Stonewall Youth Awards ceremony

How can you get involved

This year we will be running two residential programmes, so we'll be looking for twice as many Young Campaigners!

Applications for this programme will open in July.

The Young Campaigners Programme was previously known as the Youth Volunteering Programme.
