Description

Dorset #YouthVoice Convention

Dorset Youth Council invite all student councils and youth forums to attend.

These events are an opportunity to get help with your campaigns; get FREE training and meet other youth forums and key influencers.

They are also FUN!

January 2019 Convention's aim is to:

1. TRAIN young people on how to negociate and influence

2. EAT yummy food!

3. WORKSHOP: help from the experts

Please note – this event is open to young people who are members of their school council or equivalent youth representative body. This is NOT an event for 'any' young person in your school.

Each school has been provisionally allocated 5 spaces.

This event is being planned and led by Dorset Youth Council and event managed by The Participation People - who are commissioned by Dorset County Council to deliver the Youth Voice Service across the county.

ACTIONS - PLEASE READ BEFORE REGISTERING

1. Please REGISTER all participants – schools and youth forums are invited to bring up to 5 young people from their school council or youth representative body, and up to 2 members of staff.

2. Download THIS consent form – this must be completed by all young people attending the conference. Please ensure you bring these with you on the day, or scan and email in advance to dorset@participationpeople.com

3. Preparation is key – each school council and youth forum will have 5 minutes to present their successes and challenges to EVERYONE else; so we'd encourage schools to prepare this in advance, rather than on the day of the conference! If you require a PowerPoint facility, please do let us know at least 24 hours before the event.

4. Campaign ideas – please come prepared with up to 3 topics for projects or campaigns you would like to run in-school/ youth group. These will be the basis of a number of the activities during the day.

5. A full programme for the day will be sent out no later than 2 weeks before the convention date.

FAQs

1. What are my transport options for getting to and from the event?
There is PARKING available at the venue, but parking may be available on nearby residential streets.

2. How can I contact the organiser with any questions?
If you have questions about the day, please email dorset@participationpeople.com, or call 07921 907210.

3. Is it ok if the name on my ticket or registration doesn't match the person who attends?
This is absolutely fine - we just need to the 'final' names at least 24 hours before (to print name badges, mainly!).
