Become a Young Barnet Foundation Education 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.

In summer term 2022 we launched a new programme where schools are invited to join YBF as a partner. This gives schools and further education providers access to our extensive network of voluntary, community sector organisations that work with disadvantaged children and young people in the borough.

There is no cost – and many have already benefitted from enriching activities and interventions for their most disadvantaged students.


Here are some stats about the project so far:

  • We have 56 education partners that have joined Young Barnet Foundation since the beginning of Summer Term 21/22. 

  • In that time we have made over 180 connections between a school and our voluntary sector members.

  • This has resulted in 50 successful connections where a project has been delivered to a school.

  • Thousands of Barnet’s disadvantaged children and young people have benefited from these projects and interventions.

We have also visited 2 schools and delivered assemblies teaching children about philanthropy and ‘the journey of their pound’ when they fundraise for YBF. 

Teachers have also benefited from a range of free workshops including Trans Awareness, Applying for Funding from John Lyon's Charity and Bid Writing and Fundraising training.

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 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.
