Aylesbury Youth Action is a Youth-Led charity that support young people aged 14-24 years to help their local community. The projects that are available range across a wide variety of community-based categories, some of which are listed below; please check out our Weekly Projects page or Holiday Projects page for any active projects that we are running:
- Art & Design
- Justice/Human Rights
- Campaigning on issues
- Work with children, people with disabilities, the elderly and young people.
If you have an idea for a project please let us know and we will help support you in making it into a reality!
All the projects that we cover are community based and wearing appropriate clothing is something we need to think about. Whenever you are volunteering with us please remember to wear the AYA t-shirt and jeans or joggers and suitable footwear
If you would like to become a volunteer with AYA please take a look at our online form to register your interest with AYA, which is a drop down under the Get Involved page.
Why not use AYA through the Duke of Edinburgh scheme or the Queens Scouts Award? We offer projects that can cover any different programme, just email us with the name of the Award that you wish to work towards, and we will get back to you with more information.
Volunteering is our focus, but we need your skills from out there in the working world too!
If you are looking to add a philanthropic side to your organisation and would like to promote your business through sponsorship, we would love to hear from you. Perhaps you would like to see your logo alongside AYA’s on our T-shirts that all of our Volunteers wear? Or maybe you seeing your logo next to ours on the pens or stationery that we give out at events or activities? Has your business got services that it could offer, like HR, Marketing or Education? The list is endless and so are the possibilities.
Community links are what make AYA tick, why not be the next organisation to join the crew!
We are always on the look out for new Project Partners, whether that be with an organisation to work with on an event, activity or long term project; or we can offer AYA’s expertise in the social action field in the form of workshops.
Baked beans in a bath or local fun run! Have you an idea of how to raise funds for AYA?
Whilst AYA obtains funding from a number of national and local funding bodies (please see the Serious Stuff page for more information on these funders), we rely on YOU to help with fundraising; which allows us to fund central projects and continue doing what we do best.
If you would like to donate to AYA to help support volunteering there are a number of ways of doing this!
Checkout our Donations page for more information.

FrAYA – Friends of AYA
Do you remember being a Volunteer with AYA in years gone by?
If you are an Ex-Volunteer who left to go to University, to get employment, moved out of the area… whatever your reason, we would be delighted to hear from you again. Perhaps you would like to become a Friend of AYA and join our Alumni, who meet up nostalgically to help with projects, fundraise or get together socially. Maybe you are now working in Aylesbury Vale and would like to become a business partner or sponsor us? We look forward to hearing from you.
Here are some photo of activities that we have done in the past so why not come and join the fun!
