Empowering young people
Supporting the local community
Taking part in local campaigns
The East Grinstead youth council is striving to achieve a difference by empowering young people, enhancing life skills and getting involved in the local community.
As a youth council we will like to inspire young people to assemble together in making a positive contribution to their communities. We value all youth from all backgrounds, cultures and ages; we value all young people equally. Our mission is to provide young people with a collective voice and leadership opportunities.
Our mission is to be committed in securing that the youth are represented and participate actively as citizens. We value participation and equality; youth leadership, creating tomorrows leaders, and the recognition of young people’s accomplishments. Help us make a difference in ourselves, people and most importantly our society. The youth deserve a say in the decisions that affect our lives and our opinions deserve to be heard.
What they do
The East Grinstead Youth council is all about being heard and using good team work to make our community a better place. We will work together to achieve this and strive for the voices of the youth to be heard by our community.
We are a collaboration of young people who aspire to enhance and solve problems in our community. We provide solutions and reach out to organizations. We support a local charity each year, this year we have been supporting Age UK. The youth council run an IT club to assist the elderly in Age UK to help them use their technical devices. This has been very successful for the youth council’s volunteering. To help support Age UK a non-uniform day is going to be held at Imberhorne and Sackville secondary schools.
Our next goal would be to incorporate ourselves in the Student Councils/Student Voices of schools to endeavour and form a future for participation in school life as well as the community life. Past involvements have been in the East Grinstead Carnival, Zombie Walk for the Teen Cancer, which £160 was raised, Westminster trip-House of Parliament which will occur again in the future, and Play Day at King Georges park in August. We have joined as a group of youths to decide on how to make our community a better place for us youths.
