Youth Charter Calls for a '#LegacyOpportunity4 All' on its 28th Anniversary...


Today not only marks a year since the first national lock down, but also the 28th Anniversary of the Youth Charter. After three decades of hard work, this International Charity and United Nations NGO maintains the same drive and focus that the organisation had when it was launched 28 years ago. But, as Founder & Chair of the Youth Charter, Geoff Thompson points out, "although we note 28 years of our work, a unified and coordinated Action Plan is as vital as ever. We must continue to address the youth disaffection and disadvantage that still provokes gang-related violence and loss of life on the nation’s streets and communities to provide a #LegacyOpportunity4All"


Youth Charter New Year Message...


As we face on-going uncertainty in the lives of young people and communities and in particular those of disadvantage and disaffection, the Youth Charter continues to plan, prepare and present hope and opportunity for the days, weeks and months that lie ahead.
