Youth Board takeover 2024

Find out what happened when we handed over our social media to our Youth Board for the day.

We’d planned this takeover to be the last event to celebrate our 20th anniversary, but our Youth Board had exams in December, so we moved it to January instead!

Cherish, Matthew, Milly, Polyin, Janhavi, Hannah, Cherish, Chloe and Emma talked about their experiences of mentoring, shared their pearls of wisdom about getting work experience and applying to uni and gave us a sneak peak into their daily lives.

Head to our social media channels X, Instagram and LinkedIn to see how the day unfolded, or catch up on the blogs right here:

As a charity who’s mission is to help young people to make confident and informed decisions, youth voice is vital to us. Our Youth Board share their perspectives and experiences to help us to support even more young people.
