Take Over Day
Yesterday, I went to Takeover Day at Bucks County Council offices in Aylesbury. It was giving us a chance to look at the roles in the youth service for the day. I was put forward for it by my youth worker, Ross.
I arrived at 10am and met the other four young people who were taking part. I was looking forward to the day. I met with my youth worker, Amber. She told me what was going to happen. I was going to be a young journalist. We were going to look at the Bucks youth council twitter feed. We were sending tweets and hash tags about the youth services. We looked at three websites, the county council website, the Berkshire young people’s website and the family help website and gave our opinions about them. It was very interesting as we all had different opinions.
Lunch was provided and was lovely. It gave me a chance to chat with the other four young people. After lunch I interviewed a disability commissions officer as a young journalist and I interviewed some other people who had different jobs in the service. I also interviewed Laura, who is quite senior in the service. It was very interesting, learning what they did. I loved the interviewing.
We had to choose 53 blogging ideas which we are going to blog about.
At the end of the day I filled out an AQA evaluation about the day. It was a fun day, as well as an interesting and useful learning experience, which gave me an insight into how other people think and how I will think in the future. I would thoroughly recommend it to other people.
I am looking forward to the follow up day.
