Young people share their voice for National Youth Work Week
Dudley Youth Council has put together a series of videos as part of National Youth Work Week (2 – 8 November).
The series, titled 'Your Voice, But Digital', provides information on local and national topics for young people.
In collaboration with LyfeProof, the young people have created videos covering national topics such as the inequalities in society, the problem of knife crime as well as more local subjects like the development in Dudley and Make Your Mark, the largest youth consultation in Europe.
As part of this series of videos, released throughout the week on Dudley Youth Council's social media platforms, the group will also be launching nominations for their annual Dudley Youth Awards.
Harley Keasey, chair of the Dudley Youth Council said:
As a formal ceremony cannot be held this year, the Dudley Youth Council will be recording the achievements of the nominated young people and recognising them on our social media platforms across two weeks in December.
Now, more than ever, it's important that young people's achievements are recognised and we're hoping the awards can do this.
To view the videos search ‘Dudley YouthCouncil’ on youtube
Nominations will open on Friday 6 November and remain open till Friday 27 November.
