We help the many amazing people who give their time either paid or as volunteers to run youth clubs and groups across Kent & Medway to support young people.
Much of our support is open to anyone that wants to take advantage of it but we also offer clubs and groups the opportunity to affiliate to Young Kent. In doing so the club gains Young Kent approved status to demonstrate that it meets the standards required for affiliation. Member clubs also enjoy a number of exclusive benefits.
