Become a Young Barnet Foundation School Partner

Young Barnet Foundation (YBF) is committed to growing local activities and opportunities for struggling, vulnerable children and young people in Barnet.

A child's life is influenced by their home, school and community environments. By working together, we believe that we can create safer, stronger, more connected communities so all our children and young people thrive - and we want you to be part of that.

There is no charge to join Young Barnet Foundation and your school will become part of a thriving network bringing about positive social change and greater representation for the children and young people of Barnet. 

Add your school's voice and experience to our network of hundreds of other Barnet organisations and connect with Young Barnet Foundation members and local voluntary sector organisations to enhance the support, opportunities and enriching activities available to your most vulnerable pupils.
