Youth Commission seeks new members
The North Yorkshire Youth Commission Needs You!
Do you want to:
- Work alongside other young adults to make a change
- Advise the Police and Crime Commissioner and North Yorkshire Police
- Develop leadership skills and gain valuable experience
The Youth Commission allows young people to get involved and have their say about policing and crime where they live.
The North Yorkshire Youth Commission enables young people to support, challenge and inform the work of the Police and Crime Commissioner for North Yorkshire, Julia Mulligan, and North Yorkshire Police. This is a very important role, because it helps the Commissioner and the Police to make better decisions to meet the needs of young people.
We are looking for participants aged 14-25 years from the North Yorkshire policing area – including York, Harrogate, Skipton, Scarborough, Ryedale, Selby, Richmondshire and Hambleton. The role is open to anyone in this age group from one of these areas.
In total, we are seeking to recruit up to 35 young people. We are looking for people who are good team players and willing to get involved with all the activities of the Youth Commission. We are also very keen to ensure that theYouth 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 havedirect personal experience of the police and the criminal justice system.
Julia Mulligan, elected Police and Crime Commissioner for North Yorkshire, said:
I instigated the Youth Commission because it was clear from my work in drawing up the Police and Crime Plan that the views of children and young people were not being heard as they should be.
