Youth Forum Champions

Youth Forum Champions Opportunity

Southampton City Council are currently recruiting for Youth Forum Champions!

By becoming a member of the Youth Forum, young people will have the exciting opportunity to make a real difference not only to their own lives, but also the lives of other children, young people and families across the city.

Young people can become a member if:

They live in Southampton

Go to school or college in Southampton

Are in training in Southampton

Work in Southampton

By becoming a member, it is completely up to that young person how much or how little they want to be involved. By signing up, we will keep in touch (via email) by alerting them to the latest information, events and opportunities to have their say. Equally, if a young person has an idea such as a project, campaign or issue that they would like the Youth Forum to help with, then we want to hear from them.

We are also looking to recruit 30 Youth Forum Champions (aged 13-25), who would meet in person and be the face of the forum. We really want this group to be full of young people from variety of backgrounds, abilities and life experiences.  The role is currently adaptable to meet the needs of the young people who may like to volunteer. We really want this to be their group- an opportunity for them to shape it as and how they like- with the support of the Youth Forum

If you are interested in the Youth Forum opportunities, know someone who might be, or would like further info, email youthforum@southampton.gov.uk or sign up directly via this link: https://southamptoncitycouncil.researchfeedback.net/wh/s.asp?k=147326230244
