Description

Dorset's #YouthVoice Summit is an opportunity for young people AND decision makers to shape how young people are listened to, heard and their views acted upon.

Participants will explore what makes a good student council or youth forum.

They will have the opportunity to get decision makers involved in their campaigns.

The conference is open to schools, colleges and youth forums across Dorset.
