The Volunteers

"We are not the Youth Action Network"

Working directly with young volunteers has always been important to YAN and they have been integral to their successes. Young volunteers have worked with YAN over the years on various successful projects.

YANsters have been recruited through member organisations across England; they have experience of local youth action and bring that experience to share with others. Volunteering with Youth Action Network gave young people a great progression opportunity with a national organisation.
