Youth Force is a group of young people that work with us to help prevent the spread of Coronavirus.

Young people are given a lot of bad press when it comes to spreading Coronavirus, so it's important to show that the perception that young people don't care is a false one!

How can I get involved?

Keep an eye out on our events page to sign up for our latest events and meetings, and email us at [email protected] or text us on 07458301350 and tell us you'd like to join Youth Force. Got any questions? We'd be happy to answer them!

Watch our interviews!

The young people involved in the Youth Force interviewed Greg Fell, Director of Public Health Sheffield, city counsellors Safiya Saeed and Martin Phipps, and Youth Worker and Radio Presenter Lloyd Samuels about the vaccine. Take a look below.

Listen to the podcasts!

At the start of 2021 while the country was in lockdown, the Youth Force group got together and recorded some podcasts about how to support each other and stay safe. Listen below or on Spotify.

Episode 1 - Tips for isolation

Brand Manager, Matt, who's been helping with the project, said this:

Everything the young people have done so far has been excellent. It's real. It's great to hear young people talking openly about such serious things having clearly done their research to make sure they're informed, and showing the rest of the population that young people want to be part of the solution, not just part of the problem!

We wouldn't have been able to run this project without funding from Sheffield City Council. Find out more about our work with them.
