We are an award winning, community organisation led by & for young people.
Conscious Youth C.I.C was set up in 2016 in response to council cuts and the closure of youth provisions and services within Kirklees.
Our work is developed through consultation activities with young people starting with their skills, passions, interests and concerns. Our key priorities aim to address active citizenship and community cohesion.
Our activities and events include; a youth group, social action, creative arts, fundraising, culture sharing, community engagement and personal development workshops in schools and community spaces.
The organisation is run by Serena Johnson and Sophie Simpson who both have established a great reputation in the delivery of youth and community work projects and are supported by an advisory board who are experienced in social enterprise management and youth and community development.
