Youth Cabinet Meetings and Consultations

Meetings

Youth Cabinet meetings are held once a month, where a wide range of issues that are important to young people are discussed. Members provide an update about what has been happening in their Districts and discuss any projects or campaigns that are being worked on as well as any other issues that are raised. Often meetings focus on a particular theme, with those who work in these areas invited along to hear the views of young people.

We can also host informal meetings to plan and prepare for campaigns and events when they are needed. In addition to these meetings, members of the Youth Cabinet can also get involved with various other opportunities if they so wish. This might include giving presentations at conferences or events, attending meetings to represent the views of young people, or helping out with other relevant projects and initiatives.

In the summer we will also meet for a two day residential where we have fun, plan and learn skills via workshops.
