The Archbishop of York Youth Trust

 The Archbishop of York Youth Trust has been set up to help and motivate young people to be leaders of change in their local communities.

Be the change that you want to see

"I have the highest admiration for young people and I believe very strongly that they are dreamers, they are idealists, they believe it is possible to make poverty history and to have a world without war and where there is no hunger. I want to be able to enable young people to change the world and to make the world the place that God wants it to become.  I remember those words of Mahatma Gandhi who said: "Be the change you want to see in the world." My prayer is that young people will be inspired and enabled to be that change.

The Archbishop of York Youth Trust exists to help and motivate young people to be leaders of change in their local communities. The Youth Trust is geared up to enable people up to the age of 25 in the North of England, from Chester to the Scottish Borders.

Part of the Youth Trust's work focuses upon areas of economic deprivation, through providing opportunities to help young people develop their leadership potential. 

Do you want to be involved?

The Youth Trust aims to help and motivate young people up to the age of 25 to be leaders of change in their local communities, using their faith as a basis for transforming society. Dr Sentamu is asking businesses, individuals and schools to contribute to the trust by either donating to specific projects, 'adopting' a youth worker or by sponsoring the oustanding Young Leaders Award.
