A group of Alfriston students were invited to attend a Youth Voice event at The Hub in High Wycombe.
Eight of our students took part in a range of workshops and discussions with other school representatives. We were able to share issues and concerns that affect young people today and try to come up with solutions or ideas to help resolve these.
Topics which all the representatives thought were worthy of discussion were:
– Mental Health
– Staying safe
– Ideas for teens (things to do)
Our ideas were then presented to the panel led by Youth services, Mind and the police force.
The girls came up with some great ideas for ways in which the youth services could evolve in the future, such as open air cinemas for the young and social spaces where they could gather safely with friends.
All the girls involved should be very proud of themselves, as am I.
