What is Reading Youth Council?
As well campaigning and being involved with projects, we also hold an annual conference for all young people in Reading – which you can take part in on this page, below!
This year’s event is our first ever virtual conference making it really accessible for you to join in.
And it’s a virtual event with a difference as it’s all set out using an online survey tool, so that you can join in, over three weeks.
The event is made up of four sessions, on important topics such as mental health and the environment and includes a mix of videos, presentations and interactive quizzes.
By taking part, you will learn useful information, as well as having an opportunity for both you – and your school to win some fantastic locally-sourced prizes!
To get started, please click the below link which will take you to the event site (in SurveyMonkey). You will also need to come back here to read the below presentations for the workshops.
Thank you for reading and taking part in the event!
