Posted by Jacob Wrenn on July 26, 2018 · 1 min read

The Surrey Heath Youth Council is recruiting! Join the SHYC to stand up for your opinions and improve Surrey Heath for all young people. Anyone aged 13-18 (school years 7-13) who lives or goes to school in Surrey Heath can apply to join the SHYC. The Youth Council needs people with all sorts of skills such as organising, fund-raising, IT, web, graphics and design, video, running meetings and presenting. It’s also a great way to learn some of these skills. SHYC is committed to achieving equality and fairness. We welcome applications from all sections of the community, particularly from underrepresented groups.

Joining the SHYC gives you an opportunity to share your views and make a difference. Previous youth councillors have also received ASDAN qualifications, been given the Diana Award and used their time at SHYC for their DofE volunteering.

SHYC meet every week in Camberley to work on projects that we come up with based on the views of young people in Surrey Heath. Previously we have worked on Anti-Bullying Training Days, our Anti-Stigma Conference and we often run consultations and surveys of young people to ensure we are representing their views as best as we can.

Our meetings are casual and youth-led so we decide what we work on and there are always lots of snacks!

If you are interested in joining, fill out our quick and easy online application form.
