Who is the Reading Youth Council?
We are a group of elected representatives for the young people of Reading, who campaign on issues that have been highlighted both locally and nationally. We make a difference by voicing all our opinions to the decision makers.
And we’re recruiting for 2021!
You’ll represent your school, help create change and have fun along the way.
To get involved you’ll need to nominate yourself by 31 January.
Some of the things you’ll get involved with include:
- Taking part in planning, delivering and evaluating services for young people
- Consulting, meeting and influencing decision makers
- Consulting with young people
- Promoting positive images of young people
- Taking part in interviews for Brighter Futures for Children
- Campaigning for important issues for all young people in Reading
Joining the Youth Council is a fantastic opportunity to have your say on issues that are important to you, develop personally and also enhance your C.V. or personal statement.
The Youth Council also works with the Local Safeguarding Children Board (LSCB), the UK Youth Parliament (UKYP), the Children-in-Care Council, senior managers and Councillor’s and voluntary groups and the community.
So get involved and make a difference!
