Young people advocating for race equality
Young people from Black, Asian, Mixed-heritage and minority ethnic backgrounds lie at the heart of our work to achieve race equality.
That is why we are proud to have created a specialist youth panel, as part of our Infrastructure Resilience Programme. Thanks to generous funding from the Youth Futures Foundation, ARE will be working closely with 16 – 24 year old’s from ethnically diverse backgrounds to ensure their voices and lived experiences inform how we deliver positive and meaningful change for the next generation.

Isaac’s interests in music, technology, digital media and storytelling have inspired him to enter contests like the worldwide UKSC competition.
She has volunteered with and tutored other young people, and is also experienced with mentoring programmes that open otherwise closed-doors for young people from underrepresented, minority communities like her own.
This is her first role in an organisation making meaningful change, but hopefully will be the first of many!
