About the West Yorkshire Youth Commission
The West Yorkshire Youth Commission is a peer-led project that enables young people to get involved and have their say about urgent issues that affect their lives and help build a safer community.
The West Yorkshire Violence Reduction Unit (VRU) has partnered with Leaders Unlocked to help shape approaches to youth-led initiatives particularly in response to violent crime & exploitation.
We are looking for participants aged 14-25 years. The role is open to anyone in this age group living in West Yorkshire.
In total, we are seeking to recruit up to 20/25 young people.
We are looking for people who will be:
- Good team players.
- Committed to the project.
- Willing to attend Youth Commission sessions.
The first 2 sessions will take place on a Saturday. Other smaller meetings will generally be on weekdays (early evenings).
We are also very keen to ensure that the Youth Commission is made up of a diverse group of young people who broadly reflect the make-up of the local population, including those who may have interest in the police and justice system.
