Young London is a grassroots organization founded by, led by, and serving young people in London, Ontario, and the surrounding area since 2011. We exist to create equitable opportunities for young people’s voices and expertise to be heard and valued in all aspects of public life from politics, to community action to philanthropy & research. We believe in the importance of youth ‘having a seat at the table’ and being valued as decision-makers.
Our current work includes supporting the Canada Life Young Leaders board placement and governance training program, the youth in philanthropy grant panel, London Youth Advisory Council, and youth connector training. From time to time, we also facilitate youth participatory research and evaluation projects and support other young organizers in their efforts to make our community a better place for young people.
