Young Wulfrunians aged 11-25 are being invited to this year’s virtual #YES Youth Engagement Conference.

The conference, which takes place on Microsoft Teams on Monday (10 August) from 2pm-3.30pm, will give young people the chance to hear from different groups and organisations about what they are doing to benefit young people in the city.

This will include updates from the City of Wolverhampton Youth Council and Sustainable West Midlands, as well as a chance for young people to find out more, and have their say about, the city’s exciting Westside development.

There will also be a prize draw, with five participants given the opportunity to win £10 worth of Amazon vouchers.

Councillor John Reynolds, the City of Wolverhampton Council’s Cabinet Member for Children and Young People, said: “Young people are a key part of shaping our city’s future and it is vital that their voices are heard.

“I would encourage as many young people to attend this virtual conference as possible so that we can share with them some of the great work already underway to make Wolverhampton a better place to grow up in, and so we can continue working in partnership with them on key city projects and issues that will play a big part in their lives, like climate change and sustainability.”

To take part, join the #YES Youth Engagement Conference at: Anybody who attends the conference will need access to a mobile phone and Microsoft Teams to take part in some of the interactive activities which are planned.
