Youth Council – 6 October

posted 28 Sep 2015, 12:25 by Phil Ellis   [ updated 28 Sep 2015, 12:25 ]
The Youth Council is open to any young person aged 11-19 who lives or goes to school in the Three Rivers District, and is a great opportunity for young people in Three Rivers to have their say, discuss a wide range of topics, and really make a difference in their local community, while learning valuable decision making, debating, and organisational skills. Meetings are very friendly and relaxed, and new faces are always welcome. 

The agenda for the meeting on the 6 October from 5:30pm till 7:00pm includes the Mill End Youth Club, where young people who are interested in attending can learn more about the project and help provide feedback and suggestions for the Club. In addition, a representative from Delete Blood Cancer will be speaking about stem cell donation and the organisation which helps increase the pool of lifesaving blood stem cell donors. Lastly, a speaker from Young Enterprise, an enterprise education charity who works to ensure the new generation of young people gets the skills they need to succeed in education, at work or in running their own firm.

The Youth Council, which meets three times per year and each meeting, is chaired by one of the young attendees on a rotating basis and topics for discussion at each meeting are decided on by attendees.

To be added to the mailing list, receive details of future meetings, help with transport or any other information, young people can contact 01923 776611 or enquiries@threerivers.gov.uk

The Three Rivers District Council address: Penn Chamber, Three Rivers House, Northway, Rickmansworth, WD3 1RL.
