Young ACAN

Young ACAN is the youth group of ACAN. Like ACAN it has no formal membership – just get in touch to join in. On social media, find them on Instagram @youngacan

Young ACAN is reaching out through schools, colleges and local youth groups. They have a growing network of Young ACAN Ambassadors who meet regularly on Zoom.

Their work programme is called “It’s Our Future” and has received Community Lottery funding. Amongst many other issues, they are concerned about the damaging effect of fast fashion on the environment, about litter and recycling, and about protecting nature. They invite you to join them to take action!
