Youth Council to reveal WE4YOU findings

28 Sep 2015

Stevenage Youth Council is encouraging young people in the town to come to a council meeting on 7 October when the findings of the WE4YOU work experience campaign will be announced.

The year-long campaign was aimed at improving the amount, the quality, and the variety of work experience available to young people. The Youth Council will use the findings of the questionnaires carried out by young people to create a hints and tips guide that will assist employers offering work experience placements.

The presentation by the Youth Council will be the main debate at the council meeting on Wednesday 7 October at 7pm in the Council Chambers.

Councillor Richard Henry, Executive Member for Children, Young People and Leisure, said: “The WE4YOU campaign - the vote for work experience - has been a brilliant chance for young people in Stevenage to improve the work experience placements available to them. I would encourage as many young people as possible to come to the council meeting as it will give them an opportunity to see how the findings will shape future work experience placements.”

You can be part of Stevenage Youth Council if you live or go to school in Stevenage and are aged between 11 and 19 years (up to 25 if you have a learning difficulty or disability). The Youth Council meets every Wednesday from 4.30pm to 6.30pm at the Council offices Daneshill House or at Bowes Lyon House.
