The Young Urban Arts Foundation is a charity which uses the arts to engage, inspire and transform the lives of at-risk-young people.
YUAF have helped over 18,000 young people since 2009 and continue the mission, by running workshops with the YUAF outreach bus, creative workshops and peer education programmes – all to help young people go places.
Last year, YUAF worked with 1,415 disadvantaged young people through workshops and programmes, which include young people with complex learning and behavioural needs, young people battling with cancer, traumatised young people who lost family and friends in the Grenfell tragedy and young people affiliated with knife crime & gangs.
This successful model has helped young people find purpose, confidence, inner strength and ability to turn their lives around. Help us make a difference to the youth community and offer a donation to work towards impacting young lives by:
> £750 = impacts 30 young people on outreach bus workshop
> £1,500 = 5-week personal development and mental health course for 25 young people struggling at school
> £5,000 = 6-week intensive creative media project delivered on our outreach bus to 50 young residents of a deprived estate
