While we provide support for young people regardless of their background or culture, we do focus on supporting people from ethnic minority backgrounds, as inequalities in society have been shown to be a hindrance to optimal development and life opportunities within these groups.
In our work with young people, we develop trust, build on experience and promote self-confidence. JUT helps to facilitate a comfortable and conducive environment that encourages young people to actively listen, be heard, develop and gain empowerment.
JUT has a great working team that consists of Board members, volunteers, mentors, Youth Ambassadors and our wider youth network.
Collectively, our team has vast experience of mentoring children, young adults, youth groups, women’s groups and employees. Our professional background and experience includes supporting and working with vulnerable groups, including young people from disadvantaged backgrounds.
