The award-winning Youth Engagement programmes delivered by Everton in the Community work to empower our young people to tackle current social issues that are prevalent across Merseyside today and encourage community cohesion.

The charity works tirelessly to bring groups of young people together from many different backgrounds to learn from each other and inspires individuals to make positive, impactful life choices by steering them into paths of education and employment.

The pioneering programmes delivered by Everton in the Community extend beyond helping young people take positive alternative routes into education; these programmes also save the taxpayer money by helping to reduce the amount of anti-social and criminal incidents the police and youth justice system deal with across Merseyside.

The programmes all work towards creating stronger, more respectful communities and reaching out into some of the most challenging and hard-to-reach groups across Liverpool to encourage young people to develop their potential.

The impact of the charity’s Youth Engagement projects is regularly recognised on a national level with both the Lottery’s Youth in Focus Annual Report and the Youth Justice Board putting our programmes forward as examples of effective and positive practise.
