Welcome to the York Youth Council Website

The York Youth Council are a group of young people who come from all over the city to voice your views.  We work to make a positive difference that benefits all of York’s youth.

 Local campaigns

Our two campaigns are:

Curriculum for Life

  •    A youth council approved curriculum
  •   A guide to services ( NOT another survivors guide)


  • universal bus pass( comparative to first York annual pass)


  • improving the cycle network – create a resource to raise awareness of cycle paths etc




The two National Campaigns
