If you are aged 11 – 18 and live in Weston-super-Mare then this could be the opportunity for you! Youth Councillors have the opportunity to represent the young people’s view on events and provision for all young people in Weston-super-Mare and to use their energy to effect change in a way that they believe in.

Young people involved in the Youth Council can expect to gain experience of decision-making and planning, learn about democratic process, improve their advocacy, communication and teamwork skills and have the opportunity to make a positive contribution to their local community.
