I'm getting in touch to let you know about our new “Local Champions” initiative, supporting young people who have benefited from youth work to advocate in their communities, as part of our Youth Work Changes Lives campaign.
We’ll be providing tailored training and ongoing support so that these new Local Champions gain skills in advocacy and how to work with and influence politicians to ensure investment in youth work is firmly placed on the political agenda.
Young people (under 30) interested in becoming local champions December 13th @ 17:30 (online).
Who is this for?
We are looking for as wide a geographical spread and as diverse a group of Local Champions as possible. So if you are under 30 and are, or have been, involved in youth work, we’d encourage you to apply.
Local Champions will
get first-hand experience of the political system
learn the importance of local politics and local action
develop valuable communication and persuasion skills
meet other like-minded young people
give voice to your experience of youth work and much more...
