The Cathedral’s work with young people provides opportunities to discover skills and talents, and to get involved in social action.
YASA -Young Ambassadors for Social Action
Chichester Cathedral's Young Ambassadors programme offers young people aged 16 – 25 the opportunity to engage in social action activities where they can develop ideas and projects.
The group have been discussing current Climate Change issues and have been working on a project which will give ideas and tips on how we can all have a more ethical and ecologically friendly Christmas.
COMING SOON - A short film tips on gifts, wrapping and what to cook on Christmas Day.
The current YASA sessions are supported by Clarions Futures as part of its Community Ambassadors Programme.
The Cathedral works in partnership with other organisations to develop relevant, exciting and sustainable initiatives for young people and build lasting relationships to shape future projects.
West Sussex Young Carers Service
With West Sussex Young Carers Service team we are developing opportunities for groups of young carers to take part in engaging and inspirational activities at the Cathedral. Consultation and evaluation is a key element of our delivery plan and young people are encouraged to voice their ideas to help shape the future engagement programme.
National Citizen Service (NCS)
NCS brings together 15–17 year olds from different backgrounds at a pivotal moment in their lives to improve social mobility, social cohesion and social engagement.
The Cathedral is hosting NCS during the summer holidays, where participants can come together and be inspired by this amazing place as they explore ideas for their own social projects – building their confidence in what they can achieve, and creating bridges across social divides and ladders to opportunity in the process.
