YouthNet exists to equip young people with the skills they need to lead fulfilling lives by harnessing digital technology for good and putting young people at the heart of our innovation.
Growing up means change and uncertainty. Without the right support at the right time young people feel lonely and isolated, unable to make informed decisions and move forward. But YouthNet believes that young people have the power to find solutions and change their world. They just need support, confidence and skills to take action.
Each month, 85,000 young people like Katie turn to TheSite for information, advice or someone to talk to.
We can only continue to provide this support with your help. Together we can provide them with the tools to make healthy decisions about their lives.
How can you support us?
There are a number of different ways to support YouthNet to help young people in the UK:
What will you support?
We have the potential to reach more young people, to help them to take responsibility for their own lives, to shape their future and to contribute to society. YouthNet runs online services that need your support:
TheSite.org – TheSite.org provides essential, straight-talking, anonymous advice to young people aged 16 to 25 about any issue affecting their lives. The online guide to life has over 85,000 visitors every month includes an online community with 41,000 registered users plus over 2000 articles, blogs, podcasts and videos.
Stepfinder – Our Stepfinder app helps young people who are visiting a support service for the first time. StepFinder takes away the stress with tips and advice from others who’ve used the same services. We show which organisations young people say are ‘youth friendly’ so they can trust you’re going to get a good service.
