We are Peer Action Collective
(PAC)

We are a group of 16 to 25 year olds who want to help young people live a life free from violence.

We are listening to other young people’s experiences. Backed by the Youth Endowment Fund, the #iwill fund and Co-op, we will turn what we learn into action.

You said, we listened

Almost half

of 10 to 15 year olds feel they have fallen behind in school in the past year.

Move forward by learning about volunteering opportunities. They can help you develop different skills and experience.

55%

of young people feel pushed to the back of the queue on job opportunities.

Get ahead by exploring different careers at Co-op. Apprenticeships let you work and study at the same time.

42%

of Black young people and 40% of Asian young people believe their future is set. Compared to 28% of White young people.

Look ahead to a fairer future for everyone, whatever your background.

Together let's make the future fairer

A new study from Co-op listened to over 5,000 young people aged 10 to 25. They said what action needs to be taken in schools and jobs to improve their life chances.

Young people have so much value which is why now is the time to invest in ensuring a great future is within reach. We all have a role to play to change the narrative and I am excited to see Co-op will undertake to reduce these worrying stats that have come directly from young people.
