What is Youth Ambition

Youth Ambition is a part of Oxford City Councils Active Communities Team. The work they do links into the Council's corporate priority of Stronger, More Active Communities and also delivers the Youth Ambition Strategy.

The aim of Youth Ambition is to build meaningful relationships with disadvantaged young people aged 10-21 years old, (or up to 25 if they have physical or learning difficulties), who are from Oxford's regeneration areas.

They engage with young people through youth voice activities, youth clubs, multi-sports sessions and detached work in a variety of settings. They also work in partnership with other voluntary, community and statutory organisations.

Getting to know young people gives them the opportunity to identify their needs and they then help them to develop through community projects; issue based group work and 1 to 1 advice and guidance. They will also actively refer them for specialist support if needed.

The result is more cohesive communities and independent young people who are healthy and happy, have the skills and knowledge to access and maintain employment, education or training and are not involved in crime and anti-social behaviour.
