THE VOICE OF THE NEXT GENERATION
We are a youth network that gets more young people engaged in politics by providing political literacy education and a platform for young people to share ideas and voice opinions.
Our platform gives the next generation a place to share ideas, debate and discuss the world they want to live in both online and offline. We reach them wherever, whenever, however, from our youth-led news platform, our live events, peer-to-peer parliament debates, Hackathons and school workshops and courses, we ensure we are where they are; online and in school.
Our aim is simple: To provide a global collective voice for the next generation that is armed with the tools necessary to incite positive change.

WHAT WE DO
Journalism & Multimedia Production
Our website is based on edited user-generated content. Our in-house editors check spelling, grammar and fact. We are politically neutral and work on a strict Freedom of Speech principle. Articles, videos and other multi-media content is published on a daily basis.
We also produce high-quality visual and graphic content that aims to show all kinds of social and political issues in an entertaining and engaging fashion. We have, independently, produced two short films; Anonymous: A Million Men (2015) and One in a Million (2016) – as well as worked with a host of organisations on different video projects, including the University of Sheffield, the ESRC and the Britain in Europe think-tank.
On the 28th April 2015, we collaborated with Channel 4 and ITN Productions to launch Britain’s first ever Youth Leaders’ Debate. After 10 minutes of the programme going live, the #YouthLeaders was trending top 6 on Twitter (UK).
We provide a variety of workshops and programmes around Political Literacy and Leadership, as well as issue-based resources. Our Political Literacy Course is our flagship program, which aims to get more young people interested and engaged in politics by teaching them about the processes within politics, public speaking, and debating. The skills learned on this Course enhance the student’s self-image, confidence and emotional resilience. The Course covers an Introduction to British Politics (local and national, separation of powers, voting and debating), International Relations (Britain and the world, media literacy and political theory) and Employability & Politics (oratory skills, debating and public speaking).
We also run an exclusive Subscription service for UK high schools up and down the country that gives schools the ability to outsource their Political Literacy and Enrichment activities to an organisation run by, and for, young people. The Subscription service provides schools with the tools necessary to engage their students in politics and direct access to our platform and content.
Led by a digitized, teacher-led version of the Political Literacy Course – and supplemented by a host of facilitator workshops and resources easily booked via our new E-learning portal – we aim to provide an easy to use one-stop-shop for political learning and enrichment with blended learning at its core.
