At YL, we’re passionate about providing young people with the widest possible range of positive activities. Everything we do is dedicated to supporting young people to achieve their full potential.
Personally speaking, I started my youth work career nearly 25 years ago as a volunteer in my local youth club and quickly became hooked. I became a counsellor for another charity, gained qualifications in Youth & Community Development and worked with young homeless people. After many rewarding years with Northampton Youth Service, I joined Young Leicestershire as CEO eight years ago.
At Young Leicestershire, we benefit from a dedicated and experienced staff team based not only here at our Head Office but also in our many affiliated youth clubs around the city and county.
We’re all here to help you Get Involved!
Alison Jolley, CEO
