RCT Participation, we are a group 23 young people who represent young people across Rhondda Cynon Taff, we’re made up from the 12 Youth Cluster Forums that have been set up in Rhondda Cynon Taf. So wherever you live in RCT, we are representing young people out there like you!
What did we do over the weekend in the Dolygaer Outdoor Pursuit Centre you may ask? All 23 of us participated in learning all about the United Nations Conventions on the Rights of a Child, what rights we have and how we can get our voices and opinions heard. We found out ways of how participate and what it means to us as well as getting involved.
We had a great weekend doing some team building games and learning all about Funky Dragon (The Children and Young People’s Assembly for Wales). We also completed an Agored Cymru Unit accreditation on “Being an effective youth forum representative”.
We had a karaoke in the evening, to our surprise we found out that there were some fantastic singers and dancers on the team, best of all we spent the night having dance offs! ?The weekend was really good fun and everyone made lots of new friends, in fact we all want another residential.
If you want to get involved and have the opportunity to improve your community with issues that affect young people? Join your local cluster forum or youth forum.
Please see the picture above on our residential training weekend in Dolygaer Outdoor Pursuit Centre in Merthyr Tydfil. No phones no shops just lots of mountains and sheep!
