Help set the direction… your way
A talented group of young people, named the Young People’s Development Group, helped come up with the concept and name of The Way for Wolverhampton Youth Zone as well as helping shape both the exterior and interior designs of the building. Hoardings have also recently been designed by young people to sit outside The Way and young people have also helped recruit The Way’s first staff member.
Building work on site is well-underway and it will be a busy year for the Youth Zone with lots happening. There are still opportunities to get involved in the Youth Zone before it opens and anyone interested should email: Dave.Barton@OnSideYouthZones.org.
Young people will also get the chance to promote The Way, get involved in community fundraising, visit and meet other members from existing Youth Zones. Click here to find out more about the existing Youth Zone Network.
We are always open for groups of young people to visit the Network of existing Youth Zones, so if this sounds like something you would be interested in, just get in touch via email: firstname.lastname@example.org,
or get a youth worker to do so.
The Young Peoples Development Group are now developing into the Way’s Youth Board. The Youth board meets most Tuesday evenings. If you are interested in becoming involved in this group please contact email@example.com but please remember places are limited. However there are always other opportunities to get involved.
As the Youth Zone moves towards opening, young people will have the opportunity to become involved in the recruitment of further staff posts, will have a say in the interior design of the building including ideas for equipment and they will also help decide on the Youth Zone’s activity programme, fund raising ideas as well as becoming ambassadors for the Youth Zone.
