Together with Young People is a collective of seven youth organisers in York. Most of us work directly with young people, and others give support to young people's organisations. The collective came together because the members believe that young people in York can do a huge amount to change the system that so often fails them. We also think that youth services can work better to support young people by working together with young people and one another in new ways. We want to create a web of communication and action that generates, spreads and sustains great initiatives. TWYP is all of us together, it’s not one organisation or kind of person. We aim to speak at scale as well as supporting multiple small and meaningful changes. Our way of making decisions is egalitarian and our activities come out of our continuous learning. It's our principle that to work together well you need to spend time getting to know and trust each other. We know the value of diverse perspectives and lived experience. And we put a lot of store on being ready to act on ideas and opportunities as they emerge. 

We've got three themes at present: a youth-led theme, a communicating theme and a networking theme. Each one works in the same way as the collective -they're egalitarian, active and built on radical trust.
