One of the main goals of the Council for British Archaeology is to help young people engage and participate with archaeology and the heritage around them.
Our flagship youth engagement programme is the Young Archaeologists’ Club (YAC), which has been providing archaeological experiences for young people from across the UK for more than 40 years.
Projects like our current Youth Governance: Have your say! and From Ordinary to Extraordinary focus on youth voice and co-creation, which reflects our ambitions to make sure that young people can shape the world around them by ensuring their voice is heard and by creating opportunities to effect the changes they want. We hope by adopting this approach to build greater diversity and equity within the archaeological community.
The CBA and YAC, with the support of many different organisations and individuals, have also developed a wealth of free resources. From Dig School, a series of 21 archaeology-themed workshops that you can do from your bedroom or classroom to the YAC resource library which contains 100’s of activity and session ideas, there is something for everyone to enjoy.
