Our 6 young people to attend Youthcracy 2022

Do you want to join me in making a difference? I'm raising money in aid of YOUTH FOCUS NORTH EAST, and every donation will help. Thank you in advance for contributing to this cause, which significantly benefits the young people we work with.
On July 22nd 2022 Youth Focus: North East Staff (Becca and Lisa) will be travelling with six young people across to Belgium to represent the UK and participate in Youthcracy 2022.

The project will bring together young people from the UK, Italy, Slovakia, Belgium, Luxembourg and Germany and aims for the participants to explore democratic processes through a week-long simulation game.

The young people will create their own mini society, forming their own political parties, holding elections and passing new ‘laws’. Not only will they learn about democracy and politics but they will develop a huge range of skills (communication, decision making, empathy for others, conflict resolution, compromise, presentation skills, planning skills and so much more!). They will also have the opportunity to learn about each other’s countries and cultures with a dedicated intercultural evening to share food and entertainment from their countries with each other.

The six young people who have been selected to take part are all excited and despite having very little time before we go, they have been working extremely hard to come up with different ways to fundraise the £5000 we need. So far they have planned a community fun day in Gateshead, a bag pack and a car boot sale – but make sure to keep an eye on our social media for other things that may be coming!
