Newcastle Youth Council works hard to produce a solid foundation which boasts a more positive attitude towards young people to increase their participation in society. We would really welcome the support and commitment of every school in the city to ensure a greater representation from young people of all backgrounds.

This prestigious opportunity for students has a learning-related enrichment focus, which will contribute to their personal development and build their confidence. Successful students will be part of a group of young people who will shape the future direction of Newcastle and the UNICEF Child Friendly Cities agenda, something that cannot credibly be done without their involvement. The experience will add value to their University applications and contribute to their CV or learning journey.
