Youth Travel Ambassadors
YTA teams research and develop campaigns to change people's behaviour. They focus on walking and cycling, road safety and improving passengers' experiences. They are supported by TfL, the borough and school staff.
How it works
Schools usually recruit between 6 and 12 YTA students who deliver behaviour change campaigns to their peers over the course of the academic year. Campaign initiatives can include themed assemblies, walking and cycling competitions, creative workshops, films and community events.
We have programme options to suit all schools and students which include:
- sessions delivered by specialist TfL staff
- £250 funding to deliver a YTA campaign
- options to attend Campaign Junction and end of year Expo events
- training for students to become YTA Student Leaders to mentor their peers
Our programme and challenge
The YTA programme for 2017/18 is linked to curriculum subjects. It includes 2 major events when students can meet each other, share ideas and get professional feedback.
