The youth council is all about making sure young people like you are listened to and get your voices heard by the people who make the decisions about your lives; in your school; your area; your county and your country. We also make sure that money is spent on services and activities that you want and need.
Each youth council is made up of young people from lots of different parts of the district, who go to different schools, who have different beliefs and religions, who are different ages, have different experiences and different ideas and opinions. The youth councils try and make sure young people's voices are heard at a district level. They are supported by young peoples workers.
