We're now part of the York & North Yorkshire Combined Authority

Youth Commission – Big Conversation Workshops

After setting our priorities for the year, we designed 1-hour workshops for each of our 6 key priorities.

Our Big Conversation Workshops are peer-led and target young people between the ages of 10-25 years. We ensure they are flexible and versatile to meet the needs of the variety of individuals we work with.

Our aim is to reach as many young people across North Yorkshire as possible to hear their views on topics that are most important and relevant to them. We take pride in the voice we give to young people to share their opinions honestly about issues they’ve experienced and the changes they want to see.

Our use of different activities ensures our workshops are safe environments for young people to discuss these important issues openly and to educate themselves too.

We use everything young people tell us to shape our findings and recommendations for change.
