about us

We are a youth-centred organisation, which means we understand the concerns and challenges of young people in Luton. We promise to LISTEN, ENGAGE, SUPPORT and GROW your ambition. Youth voices must to be heard. We will support young people now so we meet tomorrow’s future with today’s aspiration.

We’re about helping young minds reach their potential. 

We work with 11-25 year olds to achieve their unique potential by creating a platform for their thoughts and ideas. Our mission is to support young lutonians to improve themselves and their community.
