The BT Young Voices project.

I found this in the in the December the 12th of the Education Guardian. It may be of interest to teachers and others who have young people in their care:

Do you know a young person who is:

· Never short of an opinion on issues that affect their daily life, whether it’s the state of their school dinners or saving the planet?

·Passionate about the internet?

· Between the ages of 11 and 21 years old?

· Eager to make their mark? If you’ve answered yes to all of these questions, we’ve got the perfect challenge for them. The BT Young Voices project – which has been uniquely designed to give young people a safe and secure environment in which to discuss and debate the matters that mean most to them- is currently recruiting for a panel of young people.The panel will be charged with the responsibility of creating the projects website and steering the subsequent online community.

There is a fuller description of the project, its aims and objectives to be found right here.

The main thing is that you can play a part in encouraging pupils and young people to get involved:

If you think your child/pupil would make an ideal candidate then why not discuss the idea with them and encourage them to have a go? Or if you’re between 11-21 years old and think it sounds like a challenge you’d like to sink your teeth into, why not nominate yourself? All you have to do is write 100 words detailing why you’re right for the role. You don’t have to be a straight-A student or have a perfect track record – you just need to be passionate about the issues that affect you and your friends, and keen to make a difference…
