Improving young people's lives: the role of the environment in building resilience, responsibility and employment chances

This report from the Department of Education highlights how young people can improve their health, behaviour and sense of personal responsibility through environmental activities and volunteering. It calls on the government and service providers to do more to help young people prepare for the green economy in order to tackle youth unemployment.


 The Young Lives NEET Research and Report.

Thank you to everyone that participated in the Talent Match Research, which was launched late last month at the City Region Talent Match launch

Jenny Dobson, Funding Officer from Big Lottery, has said about this research:

"Through this piece of research Young Lives Leeds, Bradford and Wakefield have given young people across West Yorkshire a voice. Young Lives have set out a hard hitting partnership approach giving young people the opportunity to see themselves as influencers - working with those voluntary groups and local businesses to help address barriers faced by NEET young people across West Yorkshire."
