Brent Youth Parliament have launched a campaign to get young people to register to vote:
Since deciding on our main campaign which is to ‘Empower the Youth, Power the Change’. BYP members are planning and hosting a youth conference on November 23rd 2011.
The aim of the conference is for BYP to raise awareness of our campaign ‘Empower the youth, Power the Change’, which is about increasing political knowledge amongst young people.
The conference will also showcase the wide range of positive activities offered in Brent.
BYP members have developed a survey finding out young people’s views on voting, the recent riots and national cuts to youth services.
What can I do?
If you are a young person aged between ten and 24, please complete the survey and if you answer the question at the end correctly you can choose to be entered in a draw to win £30 Brent Cross vouchers.
