Dudley Youth Council (DYC) is a group of local young people aged between 11 and 19 (and up to 25 for those with a disability) who represent young people’s views and work towards improving things for young people in the borough.
DYC organises an annual ‘Dudley Youth Award’s’ Ceremony to recognise and celebrate the positive achievements and contributions young people make to their local communities.
This is the 14th year that Dudley Youth Council, with the support of the youth service has celebrated the incredible young people aged 11-19 (and up to 25 for those with a disability) we have in the borough.
This event was launched in 2004 in response to young people’s concerns about negative stereotyping through the media. The event was so successful that it won a national award from the National Youth Agency for ‘Best Publicity Campaign by a Youth Group,’ in their Positive Images Media Awards. The award ceremony takes place each year in March.
