We recently launched our Young People Ambassadors Group – Game Changers.
The group of around 90 young people, who have been formed through the network of Youth Zones as well as a number of passionate young people from London, will serve as the figureheads of our future Youth Zones.
The OnSide Ambassadors, from Wigan, Carlisle, Blackburn, Oldham, Manchester and London, will represent their Youth Zone in actioning any need for change and will also talk at OnSide events to spread the word of Youth Zones nationally with the aim of building 20 Youth Zones by 2020.
Their first task was to unite at an overnight residential stay at Mahdlo to take part in a number of workshops, one of which included a session to decide on a name for their group! After a number of online votes between the young people, the group decided ‘Game Changers’ would be the most appropriate name to represent their group of ‘changers’ – and who are we to argue!
If you are a young person and want to become a Game Changer and have your say in the development of future OnSide Youth Zone – please contact OnSide’s Youth and Engagement Worker; Wayne Carter on Wayne.Carter@OnSideYouthZones.org.
