About CYL

Who are We and What Do We Do?

Community Youth London – CYL is an independent music and media charity, who manage a variety of community-based services and initiatives, the majority of which are youth-oriented and led. Our charity became operational in January 2007 and quickly gained a positive reputation for our targeted work with young people, our approach to diversity and our innovative services.

In the time since inception, CYL has grown from a vision to a reputable charity with an impressive track record and a growing database of over 22,000+ young people across London.

A key feature of our approach is that of empowerment and ownership.

Many of our activities are youth led and managed, whilst guided and supported by industry professionals, experienced tutors and peer mentors. We involve young people in all aspects of our work and the voices of young people are well represented through our Youth Management Committee – YMC.

We have received much recognition for our work and achievements; CYL has won an award for Best Creative Community Group (BBI Southwark) and the Government New Technology award alongside Lambeth Youth Services for the use of Bluetooth media.

 

The CYL objectives are to:

  • Involve young people in all aspects of our work
  • Develop integrated youth support services
  • Offer inclusive, hands on training and education to young people
  • Continually develop social exclusion initiatives
  • Seek community partnerships to help create equal opportunities for all young people
  • Utilise multimedia to address current social issues surrounding young people
  • CYL is committed to addressing the challenging attitudes of today through understanding and communication with young people.
