Youth Travel Ambassador Programme

Kent County Council offers an incremental programme that takes the pupils from identifying a problem in their community, through to evaluating their suggested solution. The safer active travel programme empowers young people to take ownership of issues in their community and project manage achievable solutions.

Complementing core curriculum demands as well as balancing PSHE requirements, this programme engages and promotes confidence within young people.
