SchoolTools is a service run by The Youth Association. We have been championing good youth work in Yorkshire since 1904, making us one of the longest surviving youth work charities in the world. You can visit our website for more information on our history, our policies and our teams.

While we're rightfully proud of our heritage, we are just as proud of the ground breaking work we do today. Our longevity and success are built on a simple principle; we call it being 'progressive but rooted'. That means we have always been leaders and innovators in our field, but the core values behind everything we do have not changed in 100 years.
