Description of activity
Young Place Shapers (YPS) is a local charity supporting young people and young adults who live, work or study in Kingston. It helps you to be involved in your own communities and improve the environment where you live. YPS - good for people and good for the planet.
We're about putting young people at the heart of communities by supporting them to undertake practical action that improves local spaces and places, whilst providing them with skills and experience that can support their future.
We can work with young people to help them apply knowledge and skills they’re learning at college, university, work or at home.
What we do
We work with young people and young adults interested in undertaking practical action to tackle environmental and social issues.
Our programme aims to provide them with opportunities to apply and further develop their knowledge, skills and confidence to lead and support positive change in the world around them, promoting healthier and more sustainable living.
As leaders, they can also make a positive difference in their communities, inspire other young people to become active citizens, and demonstrate their talents and skills to potential employers.
