Young Voices

New Citizens Voice run Your Voice Matters workshops for young people whose parents are new citizens living in the UK.

The workshop is FREE to attend and includes lunch, we also try to provide transport to the venue wherever possible.

Aims and Objectives of the Workshop:

  • To demonstrate how young people can influence local and national decisions that shape their lives.
  • Provide new young people with the skills, information and knowledge required for effective participation in UK life at local, national and European levels.
  • To help young people understand their voice matters.
  • Raise the profile of young people from all backgrounds in the British political system.
  • Show young people how the British political system and Parliament works.
  • Encourage young people to get involved in their local community and access available services.

At the workshops there are lots of things to do and the emphasis is on activities that are fun!
