About this cause

About our cause

Authentic is a youth organisation established in Bolton in February 2006 to work with some of the most marginalised and vulnerable young people in the town. Offering a wide range of programmes and activities for 11-18 year olds, Authentic aims to support and mentor young people through their transition to adulthood, recognising that how the future looks depends on the action we take today. Founded upon Christian principles, Authentic is designed to help young people discover their own unique identity and unlock the potential that they possess. Authentic, though in its embryonic stages, intends to have local, regional and eventually national influence in the lives of teenagers. Supporting us means supporting the future.
