June 3rd 2020 is the launch of the #PowerofYouth Camapign – a nationwide collaborative effort in response to the pandemic aiming to celebrate young people’s contributions, empower more to take positive action and ensure that their voices help shape the future.
As educators across The Linking Network we know the impact of the insight and action that children and young people offer. In Bradford we were proud to witness the impact of Youth Ambassadors supporting council communications about Covid19 to young people and know of young people packing and distribution of packs to refugee families in the city.
Anyone who believes in supporting and empowering young people is welcome to take part in the campaign! If you’re looking to get involved you can download the Power Of Youth guide here from the #iwill campaign. In our Secondary Linking Programme in 2020-2021 all our linking students will be engaged in exploring the #PowerofYouth.
There are a number of other ways to get involved in the campaign.
